I have been innudated with requests for the how to's on this little clipboard and so I thought I'd post directions here for all to see. Beate has done a fantastic tutorial at this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/re.../clipboard.php
Following are my directions:
I painted the clipboard with white acrylic paint. Let it dry. I mixed a couple of drops of reinker with the white acrylic paint for each of the green and pink colors. The pink flowers were stamped and left to dry. I then used a black foam brush and layered a light coat of the green over the top. Taking a baby wipe remove the excess paint from the pink flowers. Let dry and then sand to give the distressed look. The bottom portion is just stamped and distressed cardstock. I cut a rectangle out of the pink and layered the white behind. Insert the flower and then using white glue spread over the entire back side adhere to bottom of clipboard. Use sticky strip to attach ribbon. Hopefully this will help those of you who want to replicate this look :)
These are the first altered clipboards I've made - they are so stinkin' cute
