Perfect for this time of year, I grabbed some plain wood coasters ( $1.50 from JYSK) and turned them into festive coasters. Using Ann Butler Designs newest background stamps I was able to transform the plain wood in no time at all!
ColorBox® Ann Butler Background Basics quilt-themed stamps
ColorBox® Crafters' Ink, Night
ColorBox® Ann Butler Crafters' Ink, Aquamarine, Limelight
Recollections™ sparkle embossing powder, Blue Blaze
Recollections™ Opaque Sparkle, Vintage Blue
Castin' Craft Resin Spray, clear gloss
I stamped directly onto the wood surface, poured embossing powder over the wet ink, and then heat set with my gun.
Once cooled, I used my ink blender to work the colours into all the areas that were not embossed. It is very easy to clean up excess ink that migrates onto the embossed areas because the ink won't stick to those areas and they just wipe away.
Pour opaque sparkle onto wet surface where desired.
Finish by spraying with Castin' Craft Resin Spray. Castin' Craft spray, from ETI, is a multi-purpose product allowing you to fix the glitter so it never comes off, seal your entire project, and provide a glossy protective surface! How easy is that?
