Mixed Media Cards from a Master-board.

Posted on 13 Oct 2017

On the blog today with some weekend inspiration making mixed media cards using loads of products from Chiswick.
Combining different product is a great way of combining and experimenting with different products and what better way to just to play and have fun.
I combined some POP Paint with the beautiful stamp sets from Chiswick to make these fun cards.

The concept of a Master-board is to create a large sheet of mixed media artwork and then cut it into smaller pieces to use on other art works.
This is how I approached my cards I made.

These smaller pieces used on cards make for beautiful backgrounds and quick cards. And often these pieces look much better than the original piece of art created.
So the moral of the story is to just create – it will look amazing once it is cut down.

step 1 – Use a large daisy stencil and stencil the image onto white cardstock using Dove POP Paint.
Use a small amount of paint and pounce it through the stencil using a foam applicator.

step 2 – Use watercolor paint, scribble sticks and other mediums to add colour around the stenciled daisy.

step 3 – Add stamping all over the background you created. Over stamp images on the colored background and overlap some of the images onto the daisy as well.

step 4 – Once you are happy with the look, cut the master-board piece into smaller pieces to fit onto your card.

Adhere your main pieces to the front of your folded card bases and stamp a sentiment from the Life lessons stamp set.

Finish off your cards with some embellishments and machine sewing.

These master-boards are great fun to play and experiment with products and designs.
And ocne they are cut up into smaller pieces they look amazing and become small works of art.
