Altered Clip Board

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy crafty place!
I decided to alter this clip board I was gifted at Christmas in a Vintage French theme and add it to my decorations in my guessed it! French inspired!

The first thing I did was sand the entire board then stained it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo di stress stain and then selected a paper in the colours I wanted to work with ....this one is Madame Boutique!
Glued to the front and back of the clip board.
I have inked the edges with Vintage Photo as well for the aged look.

Using the butterfly template from Imagine if I added three of the little ones using texture paste mixed with a little turquoise paint, when it dried I brushed over a little of the ink to tone down the brightness.

With the chosen sentiments and large butterfly from Imagine if and a wooden Eiffel Tower I stained them with the Vintage Photo stain and glued them down.

Finishing off with pearls, a mix of flowers, prima beads and  seam binding threaded through the top of the clip board and tied into a bow to hang!

Hope this inspires you to try some of the products over at Imagine if and create your own crafty projects.
