Those little black metal trays aren't just for mosaics anymore.  Many moons ago I picked up a stack of black metal trays approximately 6 x 9 at a garage sale for $1.00.  Apparently they were intended for a group mosaic project but never got there.  There were ten of them, they were cheap and they had craft potential, so I bought them.  A few years aging in my basement and they were ready for use.

I stamped the fan (Rub a Dub Dub) in gold permanent ink and sponged the same gold ink around the rim.  The image was colored with gel pens and Colorbox smooch ink.  When everything was dry, I sprayed a gloss sealer over the tray.  It looks nice standing on an easel as a decoration or sit it on your dresser for your perfume bottles.  You can find trays, trivets and coasters in the mosaic section of your craft stores.  If it has a flat surface you can stamp it.
