2 Tags with Masterboard - Tutorial

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

Have you ever tried creating "Masterboard" ?

Let's see the tutorial ...

Products used:
Rubber Dance Stamps- Heart, Vintage Script, Stitch & Frame
white gesso
Modelling Paste
Acrylic paints
Colour Arte Radiant gel- Kiwi
Tag Die

To start with I adhered notebook paper on thick card stock. Applied white gesso with palette knife to whole surface.

Next, I applied different colours in acrylics randomly on the surface.

I created another layer using Rubber Dance texture stamps from Stitch & Frame and black archival ink.

Stamped text using Vintage script.

Here, you will see, I have applied Colour Arte Radiant gel through stencil. And master board is ready.

I cut out 2 tags using Die.

To create focal point, I applied modelling paste on the paper, stamped onto it using heart stamp when it was still wet. Let it dry completely.

I coloured those hearts using acrylic paint and used Distress oxide ink at the edges.

Adhered the hearts on the tag. I also applied Ground espressso distress stain at the corners for grungy look.

And the tags are ready.

I hope you are inspired to make your own Master board!!

Don't forget to join our Blog Hop Event (open until 19th March)
