Ornate Printer Tray

April has arrived and I can't believe we are in the 4th month of 2014 already.
I have been in my craft room creating using   
  the scrapmatts  printer tray ( CB7008 ) that I am showing you today.

I have used graphic 45 by the sea collection for my back ground papers and this gave me a perfect colour palette for the remainder of the project.
The embellishments I have used have a nautical feel for the most part and were 
created using kraft card stock, assorted other materials and
scrapmatts chip board.

CB1161 Flowers 11
CB1078 Gears 05
CB1158 Butterflies 20

I also used embossing powders and distress inks.

I think this project demonstrates you can create your own unique embellishments with a few resources and simple inking and embossing techniques.
I love to create detail if I can to give my creation dimension and interest.

I am teaching this project locally at the end of April, so I had to use my signature detailed style whilst trying to keep a simple construction technique.
