Dream Clipboard (Color Throwdown #103)

4 Aug

I saw this color combination over at the Color Throwdown blog and it really reminded me of strawberries but for some reason (maybe the fact that I just got some new stamps, not including strawberries) when I put this little project together there were no strawberries. It’s funny how the brain begins in one place and ends in a totally different one.

Although I’m late to enter the challenge, I figured I might as well share with you all anyway.

And here are the papers and some of the other supplies I chose:

I had a mini clipboard hanging on my bulletin board above my craft table for some time…can’t even remember where I got it. I thought it would be a cute project (at least I hoped it would…you decide)

Want to make one? Here are some quick tips…

  • Cover the back and front with tan cardstock, cutting the cardstock larger than the clipboard. Sand the edges of the paper to get a perfectly fitting edge.
  • If you are unable to remove the clipping mechanics, measure and notch.

  • Cut ruched paper with Spellbinders Labels One and Floral Accents. Cut celery paper with heart from Decorative Photo Corners. Stencil as desired.
  • Trim a 2″ ruched paper strip for the front. Distress edges and adhere.
  • Stamp Rubbernecker’s Woman with Parasol (three times) and Mystic Dream onto cut celery paper.
  • Cut the stamped woman with Petite Scalloped Ovals, SM. Use Copic markers to color shoes and parasol.
  • Use Air Brush System to color the dress. Cut it out. Cut out the woman’s arm from the third stamped image. Layer elements onto scalloped oval and add, along with the Labels One, to the back of the clipboard.
  • Hand print “dreamy” words around the label on the back.
  • Add heart to top of clip and Floral Accent just behind.

There are so many things you can do to decorate this little dude. Why not pick some up today and give it a whirl.
