A few more done!!

I was inspired by seeing the masterboards being created on the Paper Artsy challenge to have a go myself - only thing is I didn't start until yesterday! I have never made a master board before although I have made backgrounds in my journals by a similar method.
I started by smearing on paint with my finger,
used parts of a couple of stencils,
I thought they gave an impression of tree trunks,
then I thought that I should add some snowflakes.
This is how I used my master board today
 I doodled lines around the edge and decided to add some wooden trees at the bottom, unfortunately forgot that I had ink on my fingers after dipping  them in ink and got ink onto the card. Fortunately one of the stencils used also had a part that looked a bit like leaves!!
I am quite pleased with the outcome although with the closing time for the link looming I though I'd better get on to my computer pretty darn quick!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

So glad you managed to squeeze this in - I love the earthy colour tones and textures of your masterboard, and the cards look great - the natural images are the perfect choice for the stamping, and I love the little tree trios!
