Playing - Masterboards!

Recently I decided I just wanted to play with inks and embossing powders and well, let's just say I wanted to get inky. I decided that making a masterboard would fulfill my needs.

I started out from a page from an old atlas...the pages with all the city listings. I love these pages - so much potential!  I started inking...scraping the ink across the page with a squeegee this way and that. Dragging lots and dragging a little.

Next a bit of stenciling

Some stamping, some embossing even a bit of pen work and doodling.

And I ended up with a whole sheet of inky goodness to create with.
I made 5 cards, 2 ATC's and I even had left overs that I'm going to use as book marker/tags.

  1. nice masterboard Roni. I love using maps as bases too. are you making coins? love those too. I made a version of APG Jamie's coin book so working on filling it up! thanks as always for sharing.

  2. I have never used a map or atlas, what a great idea for having a large sheet to work on, thanks much it!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
