Question Posting Masterboards?

I'm asking this question to gauge the interest for uploading masterboards for all to use. Several issues of the Stampers Sampler have included directions for creating masterboards and examples of how they can be used. Typically, they are a stamped creation on a larger size of paper that's done in a free-flowing, collage style. Usually there are none (or very few) 3-d embellishments because the final product itself is not used--its color copied, and the copy is cut up into smaller sections to create new art. The masterboard is saved so that you can make as many copies as you want for future projects.

Here is a webpage with info on creating and using a masterboard:
http://www.stampington.com/html/master_board.html

I made my first attempt at a very simple masterboard this weekend with just a few stamps and inks. Would there be any interest in posting masterboard designs so that others can print and use them in their own creations?

Sounds like a very interesting idea! I honestly didn't even know what a masterboard was until today! It would be fun to have some SCS themed masterboards to use!

I've never heard of a masterboard either! But I think it's a really neat idea.

I'm going to have to start checking this out and getting my stuff out to try to do some.

i didn't think you were allowed to scan and print out copyrighted images like SU!

but i might have misunderstood something in your description as to how the masterboard is created and the end result.

For MANY stamping companies, you cannot reproduce the image- not mechanically anyway. You can only hand stamp the image. So I don't think this will work. Maybe they are using images without a copyright. don't know.

This sounds just like the One Sheet Wonder technique. The difference being saving the original and photocopying. SOunds like a nifty idea except for the photocopying. You'd need to study up on the various companies' policies for that.

I remember reading an article several years ago now talking about this very subject, masterboards, (although I'm not sure that was the word they used) and the article offered a caveat about the photocopying aspect.

I tried the Masterboard technique, using angel policy stamps, but when I made a copy of the master, it just did not come out very good. I tried several options on my printer to improve the quality of the image, and also tried different types of paper, however non of them looked as good as the masterboard itself.

I appreciate the thread and would like to see more on this topic.
