Having just returned from Ranger U, Candy decided to create a background sampler using twelve techniques she learned. A 7 Gypsies Printer Tray is the perfect decorative piece to display the backgrounds and embellishments! Candy incorporated Distress Inks, Paint Dabbers, Alcohol Inks and Color Washes to create totally different looks. Then she embellished each compartment with faux porcelain flowers made from UTEE, various Tim Holtz Ideaology pieces, stamps and die cuts for a very colorful and detailed piece.
Sarah decided to be both Girly and Grungy by creating a ring binder book of flowers and metal.
