Roc Nicholas Design Team Post

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 

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!
