Hello lovelies! It's Shay here with my World Card Making Day challenge.
When I was thinking of different possibilities I kept coming back to something I really love to do which is create backgrounds and also a cool thing called a "masterboard". In essence you create a sheet of patterned paper and use it in different ways. I wanted to show how a very simple stamped masterboard could then be cut up and then the panels altered to create different looks. Alternatively, you could do the same thing with all the panels to easily mass produce cards.
I began by stamping a 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of white cardstock with a leaf from a stamp set that is part of our October 2015 Release which will be available at the end of this month in black ink.
Then I used Smooch in kiwi, a product that was sitting on my desk that I've had for years and finally used by coloring in the leaves with it following the stroke in the center of each leaf. Around the green of the leaves I used a white crayon to then act as a resist.
From there I cut the piece of cardstock into four (4) 4.25 x 5.5 inch panels. On one panel I watercolored in the leaves with crushed olive and forest moss Distress Inks with a waterbrush and then flicked gold spray all over the panel.
To make a simple card using this panel I cut the panel to 4 x 5.25 inches. I cut out "grateful" from The Big, the Bold and Blessings Cutaways from gold cardstock and adhered it to a strip of vellum which I attached to the stamped panel. Then I attached it all to a green card base.
On another panel I sprayed the panel with peach, gold and mango colored sprays. I went in and added more of Smooch in kiwi to the leaves. I allowed it to dry. Then I stamped the circular patterns found in In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya in black ink and colored them in with ripe persimmon Distress Ink with a waterbrush. Around the leaves I shadowed the left leaves with seedless preserves Distress Ink.
To create a card from this panel I cut out In a Word: Friend Cutaway from purple cardstock and a piece of chipboard. I glued together the cardstock and chipboard together and then sprayed "friend" with shimmer and plum sprays. I attached "friend" to the panel with foam dimensional adhesive. On a banner cut from white cardstock using the Essentials: Katharine Cutaways I stamped "true" from True in ripe persimmon Distress Ink. I then adhered the whole panel to a white card base.
Now your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to build your own masterboard background and create at least one (1) card using your masterboard by Sunday, October 11, 2015 at 11:55 p.m. CST. For the more ambitious do as many cards as you like from your masterboard and link them up!
I just know you will amaze us. :-)
