Collections Printer's Tray & Cards

Hi Girls,

I have a beautiful Printer's Tray and 2 cards to share using some of the new range of Collections Elements that I was given to play with from the lovely Nicole at Craft Queen.

Loved creating with the new Collections heart shaped printer's tray.  This is perfect to create a lovely gift for a family member or a special friend.  I kept it fairly simple using some Prima 6x6 Fairy Belle pp's for the background and coordinating the paper with some new Collections pink butterflies, Printed Ephemera and Labels Old and adding some dimension and texture with some lace, twine, charms and pearl trim from Craft Queen.  I painted the printer's tray in cream and coated with crackle medium, then used some Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet distress ink to accentuate the crackle.  The pretty flourish chipboard is from Scrapmatts.

List of Materials:  Collections heart printers tray, Printed Ephemera, Labels Old, pink Butterflies, Craft Queen lace, pearl trim, twine, heart charm, Prima 6x6 Fairy Belle paper pad, Scrapmatts chipboard flourish, vintage button, Tim Holtz distress ink,  paint, crackle medium
