Coloring Stamped Coasters - Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

I really enjoy creating little works of art on coasters. This is a great way to use your stamps without having to think of a card design. There are many ways to design coasters. This one I'm going to show you is about coloring images with markers.

Supplies Used:
Ceramic Coasters - I did not use coasters from the hardware store or tumbled tiles. These are crafty ones.
Stamp Set - Paisley Rocks by The Angel Company
Craft Ink - Basic Black by Stampin Up
Markers - Summer Sun, Green Galore, and Cameo Coral by Stampin Up
Acrylic Sealer Spray

Ink up the flower image really good and randomly stamp it on the tile, inking inbetween impressions.

Randomly stamp some of the matching little flowers in between the bigger images.

Randomly stamp the dots in some of the open spaces.

Let the image dry, with by waiting or by heat setting with a heat gun. I have found that this ink does smudge a bit if I don't wait long enough. Color the image very carefully so to not collect much black ink. I think a little dark color added some shadowing and gave it some depth on this coaster.

Spray the tiles with the acrylic sealer for a couple of coats to protect the design. Wait for the spray to dry between applications.

I like the soft colors that these markers create on the tile.

You can purchase these coasters on my cardstock creations etsy shop
