just add ink challenge

the colour challenge is black and white

it was an excellent opportunity to make up some tatty old trays 
i have had lying around waiting for some love
i painted them black.
around the sides i used my embossing buddy to keep the static down. 
i stamped with versamark and added white embossing powder and heated it up.
then on a peice of white card stock i inked up some stampin up stamps 
(inspired by nature and elements of style) in black staz-on
then i laminated them and stuck them to the trays with sticky strip
now they look fab :>

gotta love recycling

cheers ears

Very fab! I love this. I'm getting ready to play with paint myself. I even have a tray that could use a refinish. :)

Claire! They look just gorgeous! Great job! I would love a set of those at home and generally, I don't do wooden trays! Love it.

Gorgeous Clare,
I really struggled with this challenge, I am not really a black and white kinda gal (even though it is the colours of my favorite footy team, but we wont go into that)!!!!!
