Master Board, JOFY inspired .....

Wow, I had an exciting start to the weekend - one of my cards was chosen as a "top pick" on the Inkspirational Challenges Blogspot.  I was so excited, thank you for the honour! You can see the card they liked here.

I love the stamp set that I used for the card, JOFY 09 from PaperArtsy, and I wanted to use it again but couldn't think how until I visited the PaperArtsy blog.  I just loved the masterboard that Jo Firth Young had produced - it was an idea I had not come across before but I just had to have a go.  I thought it would provide a useful start to provide inspiration for some cards. What I hadn't appreciated was exactly how long it was going to take to complete or how hard it is to stamp with a random layout.   Most of the images were stamped using black ink and then coloured with Inktense pencils.



I realise now that I don't have enough JOFY stamps and will just have to add some more sets to my wish list.  I am going to enter it in the PaperArtsy weekly challenge.

I'll be back to show you a couple of cards I've made using it.

Enjoy!
