Making cards using a masterboard

These are the two cards I made using my Seth Apter stenciled master board.

The master board portion is the torn paper at the bottom of the stamped and drawn panel.  The girl's face was inspired by the artist Karen O'Brien in the new magazine called "Faces".  I can't wait for her new book to be released!  She has directions showing how she draws her faces in the magazine, it left me just wanting more.

Here again I'm using just a small portion of the master board to create the stem of the flower.  Using your master board this way adds texture and interest to the project.

I hope you'll make your own original master boards, they're not only fun to make and but fun to cut up and use later!
Thanks for stopping by ~ hugs ~ Renee

P.S.  I have not heard back from the winner of the last week's giveaway "The Groove Tool".  If I don't hear from her by tonight I'll be drawing a new winner and announcing it tomorrow (Friday) morning.  Check back then, I'll give the new winner until Monday to let me know their mailing address so I can ship it out.   Best wishes to you all!


  1. Great cards - I love the sweet face you've drawn.

  2. I haven't tackled a master board. For me it seems too large of a blank canvas. But I love watching others make them and see how they use them. Your cards are unique and inspiring. Even as a small decided project rather than a portion of a master board. I see it like "think outside/past the edges".

  3. Love them both ! Fantastic !

    Apologies for being absent, I will catch up with you very soon, promise :)
    Oh they are amazing. I especially love the face. I am so timid about tackling faces but that is a conversation for another day.
    You continue to inspire with your brave use of colour and style.

  5. Renee, love that you have 2 absolutely different looks from one masterboard! You are so creative! I love that face you drew- she is a beauty! xo

  6. Masterboards are the best! LOVE that you just used a portion for the stem!
