Masterboard Fun

It has been a very wet day here, so hope these cheerful colours will brighten things up a little.

The cards have been made from a 'masterboard'. Take a piece of A4 pink card and stamp some large pink flowers and a mustard swirl. Using a spritzer tool and co-ordinating marker pens spritz colours between your stamped images to fill in the gaps, or you could use a stipple brush to achieve a similar result. Then spray the card with water and let the colours 'bleed' a little. Now use a heat gun to dry the card. Stamp some mustard 'splodges' and black bees, birds and flower centres. You can also add some torn pieces of text paper on which the edges have been coloured with a dauber (see card no. 3 below). Your 'masterboard' is now complete and you can cut it up to required sizes to design your cards, I made five cards in total.

Please note that when the card has been sprayed with water and dried it will curl up a little, so when placing pieces on your card design be sure to stick them down with some strong sticky red tape.
