This week over on PaperPlay Challenges, we're kindly sponsored by Inky Impressions who are offering 1 stamp of the winner's choice and an Inky Goodie Bag
Our theme is to create something for a Mum - this can be new mother, mother's birthday, etc... as Mother's Day is Apr 3rd in UK/Ireland
I made a clipboard for Mum to make her notes on. It's made from an A4 opaque plastic clipboard (which was liberated from my friend, Kirsty Wiseman's craft room a couple of weeks ago). I coloured the background using Alcohol Inks in red, yellow, blue and green, which when mixed together has given a lovely tortoiseshell effect. It's then decorated with BasicGrey Indian Summer paper, a paper lunch bag which I've cut to reveal a pocket for secret notes, some ribbon, lace and lots of flowers for that girlie touch.
You can see the range of flowers that I've used here. Some ready made and the two white ones in the centre of the larger flowers are handmade and VERY 3D!
