Versafine Ink Background & Tando Mini Printer Tray

Morning everyone,
Today I'm picking up my post from last week and showing what I did with the

Firstly I glued the three frame parts together, leaving the back to one side for now.
Then I used Stampendous Fran-tage,
I chose the pink glitter from one of the Encrusted Jewel kits.
Applying Versamark helped fix the glitter while I heated it
with a heat tool to melt and set it in place.

It does blow around so you can do this part in a box or tray,
 it's a bit off trial and error to find the best technique for yourself.
Normally on a card you'd heat from underneath and I did do that too and
 then when it started melting you can heat from above.
I used the glitter all over the front and sides of the glued frames.

Next I cut a piece of stamping card to fit behind the window section and
 on top of the back piece of grey board.
Using the Butterfly Collage stamp set from Artemio I stamped the main image using
Versa Color in Rose Red and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then with the remains of ink left on a piece of cut and dry that's
 used for pink/red ink pads,
 I blended colour over the piece of card.

Going back to the frame I then painted the remaining exposed areas with
Martha Stewart Bubblegum Pink paint and glued the printer tray
 and stamped card section together.
I chose four of the other stamps from the same set, stamped and clear embossed using the
Versa Color Rose Red again on the butterfly and postmark and 
the Orchid colour for the dragonfly and stamp.

After cutting out I shaped the pieces to give dimension and
 used foam pads to secure in place.
The stand for the tray has also been painted.

So there you have it, this cute feminine printer tray that would make a lovely little gift.
Hope this inspires you to create with one of these trays.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
