Love...Time Well Spent!

 Hello crafty souls!!! I wanted to show you the whole master-board that I used on the Queen of Hearts ATC, that I am also using on this ATC for the All Things Tim Yahoo Group February swap.  I used the whole 8x12 inch sheet with the exception of a 3x1 inch piece that I can still use somewhere else. It has been a while since I've used a master-board, but I will now do so often as it makes doing sets of ATC's a snap. You can do a series where you make changes to each, or do all of them the same way. I also am submitting this ATC to Lisa Somerville's Blogger's Challenge for "elements of time". Here's a quick tutorial for creating this master-board.
I dabbed on Alcohol Inks, letting the it dry a few minutes between coats, onto Glossy Cardstock.
I stamped several Valentine images using Archival and Distress Inks. I heat set them with a heat gun. I stopped here for the Queen of Hearts ATC.
For my Love Time ATC, I used the remainder of the master-board.  I cut my cards and added a winged image to the hearts. I rounded corners and added foil lace, a clock and spinner, and the computer generated sentiment.
32 Degrees North: Dresden Foil Lace
The Paper Studio: Clock Faces

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!


  1. I love creating masterboards, but I don't do them often enough. This made some fabulous ATCs, but your embellishments truly are the "frosting."

  2. Wow Anita, this is stunning! Love it very much. I've never made a masterboard. Another thing to go on my to do list!!

  3. WoWzA, these are gorgeous ... love the embellies you used!

  4. Gorgeous ATC's, Love the colour palette and the sentiment you created - stunning!

  5. Beautiful Anita, I love the heart with wings. Beautiful. I have made mine too and posted them on my blog, I hope you will go by and check out what I've been up to :)

  6. Looks wonderful, Anita. I love your clock/time hearts!
