Well I made a masterboard but I did it a little different.  I gessoed the watercolor paper with black and then stamped with one stamp in differnt colors.  The stamp was a spider web.  I wanted a Halloween background.  It didn't quite turn out the way I had envisioned but it still looks neet.  I made four Halloween ATCs from the board.

The Masterboard picture is enclosed in this post.  Thank you for looking.
You know it's been a good day when I haven't released the flying monkeys.......

I'm so excited to see that you've been busy this weekend!  And you get it!  The masterboard can be made in so many ways.  I was hoping people wouldn't think they have to use spray ink.

April, I love the colors and textures in your masterboard ... and the ATCs are wonderful.  You can see the sparkle, even online!

Heidi, I really liked seeing the layered stamping and stenciling on your masterboard, and as I mentioned in the comments I really like that swallow looking bird stamp.  Once you cut it in to ATCs I liked it even better!  I love the ATCs you got from your masterboard!

Thanks so much for doing this challenge, I realize it takes a bit of work!

Sadie,  my reply posted, and then I found your ATCs on page 2!

I really like your masterboard and ATCs too!  Isn't it cool how different they all turned out?  I really like how you used the spider webs, and the black, white and bright colors.  Wonderful!  I think it's neat how in some places the spider webs look like webs and in some places more like splats.

Really neat masterboard, Sadie. I also like the bright "splats" in the spider webs and I like the way they look cut down to ATC size too.

Sadie, I love your master board.  You got a really cool effect by just using the one stamp in different colors.  Perfect for Halloween.  And your ATCs are too cute.

Here is my gallery post of my ATCs.  You can also click on the photo below to enlarge it and see my masterboard before I cut the ATC's.  Thanks for a fun challenge Cindi!

You're welcome Jan!  I like what you did!  I think the fact that you used leftover ink from the paper towel challenge really adds texture and the white stamping adds a lot of interest too.

I'm loving the variety of responses to this challenge!  Great job everyone!

TFS your masterboard Jan. I love the folds from the paper towel that you can see in the background.  Left praise for your ATCs too.

I'm working on this today! Ive got a stencil I haven't had a chance to use yet. Should be lots of inky fun O0

I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's work. Love all of the ATCs that have been created!

I only finished half of my master board before chunking it…..well it became a scrap paper instead. 

I was trying to avoid doing a collage, but it didn't work with the stamps I was working with.

Does making a master board lend itself to collages?

I finished the ATCs from my first masterboard and made a second masterboard.  I'm going to take pictures tomorrow because the lighting in my house sucks for photos. 

Like Jan, I used the leftover paper towels from Stampwilly's challenge, but instead of using the piece as a whole, I ripped up a couple of pieces and Mod Podged them all over a piece of water color paper.

Melissa your question is not totally clear to me.  Perhaps it is because there is a only slight difference in a collage project versus a masterboard.  When I made my collage style single layer bookmarks I worked on my bookmark base to create a visual pleasing bookmark for my recipient and myself.  A collage is a finished piece of art with many elements/layers. 

The first part of this ATC swap is to make the masterboard.  I think of it as trying to make a nice piece of printed paper like I would buy in store if I wanted one for the background of my ATCs.  If you think of all the printed paper in a store you know “anything goes”.   You can include as much stamping as much as you like on the masterboard.   The masterboard is generally a piece created rather quickly because it is only a background paper meant to be cut into several smaller pieces for the design of several paper projects (cards, tags, bookmarks, ATCs, inchies etc). 

Hope this helps...Jan

Jan, I think your explanation of the masterboard is helpful.  If you don't want to do collage, you may just want to do some inking or ink spray and then do a repeated stamp like a more simple patterned paper.  The gallery for this challenge shows many approaches to the master board.
