Thanks so much for coming by the blog today. Today is my daughter's 23rd Birthday, Happy Birthday Brittney!!
This will be my second post for Roc Nicholas' design team. I can't say how thrilled I am to be on this wonderful team. Roc's stamps are sold at Stampotique.com
For this month's post I wanted to create something different. I am making a set of coasters to display around the house and wanted to use one for this post.
The first thing I did was prep my background with gesso, these coasters are cardboard and they really soak up the gesso
I then used some of the DecoArt media paint to brush over the gesso. I didn't completely cover the background here
I stamped all my images onto white card stock and colored them with copic markers
I used a diamond stencil and some green paint to create the diamonds in my background and then went over some with a white gel pen
Here is my finished coaster
I have used Roc's Stamps
for the flowers I simply stamped the flower from Blessed Skellie and cut them out. I drew the stems for them.
This is a fun and quirky coaster. I can't wait until the entire set is done, they will be fun to display.
Thanks for stopping by once again and have a great day!
