Printers Tray

Hello,I`m back with another awesome project we did on the cruise.

I have always wanted to do one of these Printers Trays (12inx 10.5)Was so much fun to put together with all the yummy embellishments :)

How cute are those cork vials filled with sand and small shells?
See the fab key? We all only need one,but the awesome Tim Holtz generously supplied each one of us (48 stampers)with a full packet of Idea-ology Word Keys!
Thank you Tim!

Rachel went to a lot of trouble (and packets of scrabble tiles!) to give each one of us two with our initials

The Darkroom Door papers were inked with Broken China and Antique Linen distress inks.
The grassy chipboard was painted with Bronze Precious Metal Colour (love that stuff!)

Some stamping

A shell,Darkroom Door stamps,montages,some muslin and more Tim Holtz embellishments completes this tray. It now hangs on my wall were I can admire each day!

Just a couple of photos to share
First cocktails of the day.."Sydney Sunset" Kindly bought by Lynne. Was delicious!

Beautiful Isle of Pines. The first port of call.

Our stamping room.We all had a whole table to work on.
Don't forget to click on pictures for more details.
See you again soon with more!
