Seeing is believing: Giving the printers tray an alternate look.

I took all the bits out of the printers tray from last week and gave it a new look. This time it was inspired by the Graphics45 papers and stamps... it has a bit of an "Optical theme" now and is ( I think) still suitable as a masculine themed object. (sticking with Calico Crafts Altered art challenge over on the blog)
Speaking of the challenge on the DT blog... Why not have a go? its for altered art (in keeping with the shop) and you must feature something that calico crafts supplies. The theme is a "masculine"one, in celebration of the fast approaching 'Fathers Day'.... the prize is a voucher to spend, worth £30 !!!! wow.
you can find the challenge by clicking  HERE
And as I cracked open my new stamps to make it, and "Simon says stamp" has a theme of "Anything goes" then I am adding it to their challenge. 

Supplies used from Calico Crafts:

7 gypsies printers tray
Graphics 45 papers
Graphics 45 stamps
little glass vial
7 gypsies industrial gears.
