Altered Clip Board

It seems to have been a  very long day today...but I have put it to good use.
This morning I did a few household chores that I've been putting off, nothing major, just a re-sort of the airing cupboard and sorting through my wardrobe.
At lunchtime I was ready to craft and I decided today that I would make my own clip boards.
I bought some on Amazon a while ago, made by Stampendous ( they were sent from the US ) There were 3 different sizes, so based on them I made mine using grey board and a clip.

This smaller clipboard that has been painted to seal the board.

Once I made the larger one I decided to alter it for the challenge over at ...
                                                 Artistic Outpost
You have to use their products for their challenges and I am proud to say I now own 27 sets of their stamps.

I have gone for a Shabby Chic style, well my version of it anyway,lol.

The stamps I have used are the Ephemera Set and the Generation Redux Set 

Once I had stamped the main image. I added some lace and the gorgeous ginger colour flower, that actually belonged to my mother, it was on a ribbon as a necklace.
So if you have any Artistic Outpost Stamps,why not pop over and enter their challenge here at...Artistic Outpost

I also want to enter my Shabby Chic Clip board in to the challenge over at
