Creating a Masterboard


Today I'm sharing a card that utilizes a copy of a Master Board.  I discovered the concept of "creating a Master Board" in one of the Stampington and Company publications, Take Ten.  Basically you create your own patterned paper, scan it, and then print sheets out to use in your artwork.  For this Master Board I used this lemon image from "Pucker Up" by Mark's Finest Papers.  Honestly  as much as I like this background, there is no way I would ever sit down and individually create / color it.  It would take forever.  But now that I"ve scanned it, I can print out my own lemon patterned paper anytime I want!

Check out a tutorial HERE
I hope you are inspired to create your own Master Board to use as background patterned paper as well!
Thanks for stopping by!
