Servus and welcome to a short post today in which I want to share with you the clipboard I altered for my son, who needed it for a visit with his class at the Schönbrunner Zoo.
As some of you may already know he is a huge fan of everything sea-related...all species of fish and wales, but especially deep sea creatures. I had one grey clipboard made from heavy cardboard and it was the perfect occasion to use the lovely Oxford Impressions stamp set again :)
His soul is really longing for the secrets of the sea.... so when I translated the stamped quote to him, he said this stamp must have been made especially for him. And of course he needed a name plate on the clipboard too.
The background was made using a mix of DecoArt Americana acrylic colours and a quick spreading technique (which I never get tired of using obviosly ;) and then I stamped the images directly onto it using black jet archival ink from Ranger.
The center piece is a colour copy of a postcard I found at an Advent market. I glued it to the board using glossy Mod Podge and then I sealed the whole board with Mod Podge to make it more durable. Before doing so I drew some air bubbles with a white gel pen in some places. Done.
Sadly they did not have to use their clipboards at the zoo, but my son told me that he took it out of his bag anyway...."to show a bit off with it" as he said. Could I ask for a bigger laud? Guess not :)
Thanks for stopping by for this quick share.
Hugs and happy crafting,
