Altered Clipboard

hi all,well had another crafting day with friends and did a dummy run of altering a bingo clipboard ready for a craft meet at yeovil soon so this is the end result.
started off as a boring plain clipboard
and then came the fun bit where i started off using acrylic paints as a background and then added post its,mini notice board,covered the pencil and embellished.

added a clip on the ribbon to add pics or reciepts etc and if you look quickly there is a pic of my youngest on the notice board though its a few years old now,thanks for visiting,x

Flippin men card

Good morning all,well i am getting into the swing of this holiday lark but my sleep patterns have gone awry!. Made this card last night and it took forever for some reason,couldnt make up my mind what colours,then the layout and because it is also a challenge card had to get some stripes in somewhere and that had me stumped,but at last its finished and i hope he likes it. Stamped image two times,coloured with promarkers and then decoupaged and also added glossy accents to his glass.

made the strips by laying thin strips of card across and trimming at the edge.

These stamps have got to be one of my best bargains ever and i got them from here
well off to get some breakfast and have a look around,see you later,x

UPDATE - i have changed my background other one was a bit too busy for me,x
