Stampotique Challenge 178 - Color Splash

Hello all and welcome back to the blog. This week over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge Blog our wonderful Kaz is our hostess and she has chosen the theme "Color Splash".  She would like to see some bright colors to cheer us up in the dim days of January!

This is a fun and perfect challenge for these cold winter months and you all know that I love bright colors!

I decided to do a set of coasters this year for my family to use. It lets me display my creations around the house in a utilitarian kind of way. haha! 
I decided to use this challenge to make my first one.

I bought this set of cardboard coasters at Michael's  and added gesso to the one side. This preps them to take the paint that I'm going to apply

I didn't do a full tutorial, I got a little carried away and forgot to take photos
I used Dina Wakley's paints to paint my background and added a bit of wash tape, used some stencils and added my stamped images, which were colored with copic markers
I sealed this coaster with Duncan's Collage Pauge

For this coaster I used Stampotique Stamps

I Am My Art - In Carol's Collection
Peggy - By Artists Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente
