Masterboard Card


Quick post before tea.  I made a masterboard inspired by Jo Firth Young's masterboard on Paper Artsy's blog.  I used a piece of A5 (European) and stamped some JOFY stamps all over in Versafine Onyx Black, then used Tattered Rose, Bundled Sage and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks to watercolour splodges on and around the images.  Then I chopped the piece to the size I wanted.

Before the Ripe Persimmon highlights were added
I'm entering this into Paper Artsy's weekly challenge


And Colour Me Subtle


Okey dokey, off out to enjoy dining al fresco while this gorgeous weather lasts!   Hope your weather is as nice as mine :)
