Masterboard........ I wondered what it was, never having really attempted to use the Creative Palette. I was advised to look on the internet as there were lots of samples etc. there for you to look at. I realised on looking the it was similar to mixed media / altered art.
So here is my first attempt at Masterboard and the card I made with it.
This is what I used:-
8'' x 8'' white card blank
1 sheet of Craftwork cards Velvet Plum patterned paper
Dark blue card
Patterned lilac card
Colorbox Crafters refill ink- Lemon, Aruba, Jungle
0.05 Black Pigma micron pen
Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Texture items for creating pattern on Creative palette
Woodware clear magic Stamps JGCL572 Daisy layers
Koi Colouring Brush Pen Set
White Liquid pearls
Woodware wet wipes
and this is what I did :-
1 Starting point is the centre panel. Take the Creative Palette and put a small amount of Sanitiser on to it and then using the Brayer spread this out evenly. Then take the Crafters ink and put a few drops of each colour over the palette and again spread evenly with the brayer. Take care and gently spread the colours......... it doesn't matter how much they combine its all part of the design (and no 2 will be the same)
2 Take any items you have with texture and press into the inked surface of the creative palette the texture will be lifted so you can used stamps, bottle tops,forks embossing tools any thing with texture. Once you are happy with your design then place a piece of white card over the palette and press down all over the surface the result will come away cleanly and be unique. Place this panel to the side to dry. Once dry take some kitchen paper and buff the surface to remove any excess of the sanitiser and ink. Trim this piece to the size you need for your design.
3 Additional design and texture can be added at this stage. I stamped flowers and leaves randomly over the piece. The leaves I stamped with 1st and 2nd generation stamping to give different shades to the background.
4 Then the flowers were coloured with the Koi Colouring brush pens I used #29 Green and #43 Prussian blue for the centres of the flowers. Once coloured place this piece to the side. Cut the Blue matt and the lilac patterned card matt to the required size.
5 Take the Craftwork cards patterned paper and trim to the size you want and then with a crafts knife cut around the leaves so that the Masterboard panel will fit in. Cut the final matt of the dark blue and adhere all the layers together.
6 For additional decoration I did the following extras. Around the edge of the patterned lilac card I drew 2 lines random and interlinked with the 0.05 Pigma pen then to give this layer a 'frame', and then stamped the odd leaf around the edge again using 1st and 2nd generation stamping using the Momento ink pad.
I added small dots of the liquid pearls in the centres of the patterned paper flower design and at the tops of the petals this was to add interest . I also did a few of the small dots on the stamped flower petals.
7 The sentiment was stamped on to a white piece of card and this was then matted on to the blue and lilac patterned card and the lines were drawn once again around this edge.
8 The final pieces to be done were the flower and 2 leaves which were stamped on the spare Masterboard, they were cut out and once the sentiment was attached to the card using 3D foam the flower and leaves were attached.
Theres your card it could be used for all sorts of occasions and done in totally different colours
