Spooky Printer Tray

I've combined both Design Teams again - I'm so lucky they compliment each other so well!!

 

For ~{Tando}~, I started with the 15 x 15 cms ~{Printer Tray}~. This one comes with a cover which I've saved to use for another project.
The tray itself comes as three separate identical pieces so you can make your tray the thickness that you prefer. I've used all 3 layers for depth.
I made a background on thick paper using watery Distress Inks, then ran Distress Stain along the top, sprayed this with a bit of water and let it merge and drip. I then added some Dylusions spray ink. This was stuck onto the base of the tray.
I've stuck the 3 layers together with Glossy Accents, then painted them with acrylic paint. Once dry, I've rubbed some brown ink on with my finger.
I took 2 of the smaller bats from the ~{Grab Bag of Bats}~ and coloured them with Distress Stain - how quick and easy was that? I've used my fave Uni Posca white pen for the eyes and inked around the edges.

For ~{Stampotique}~ I went for a selection of stamps from the September 2010 Release.
I have used:
~{Web}~ on the background for one square
the spider and 2 birds from ~{Birds and Bugs Cube}~
~{Tree}~
all of ~{Halloween Cube 2}~
and the bat and skull from ~{Halloween Cube 2}~
I coloured these with Inktense pencils and they have all been stuck with silicone glue to allow dimension. Some have Crackle Accents on them for interest.

I then took a metal lock, key and charm and dabbed them with black acrylic paint which was blotted off after a minute to age them. I then used white rub on letters to spell spooky.
