Topic 22 at PaperArtsy is Masterboards. I'm pretty new to these but what's not to love, right?

I'm finding it hard to tear myself away from Emma's latest Christmas release at the moment. It's just so useful. It was on my desk the other day and I noticed the tags looked like little houses, which led to this card.

I kept my masterboard really simple and used a combination of one of my all time favourite stencils, again by Emma Godfrey for PaperArtsy - 018 EEG . I just painted the whole background with Space Cadet Fresco Paint and stencilled the stars in four different colours of Fresco Paints (Chalk, Pewter, Antarctic and Inky Pool.

The stamping is done with white archival ink and white embossing powder. I used the let it snow stamp from the set and the small snowflake.

The tree trunks are from the same stencil. I just added some details with black fineliner. The treetops are the bigger snowflakes from the stamp set, stamped, heat embossed and cut out.

You've still got plenty of time to join in with this topic at PaperArtsy. There's some great inspiration there so nip over and take a look.
