Create Your Own Custom Coaster!

Hi! I wanted to share some coasters I created recently using some Crafter's Companion supplies!

I love my Spectrum Aquas, so I stamped them onto watercolor stock and used the no-line watercolor technique.  This is quite easy to do - just stamp with a light color ink or a light Distress Ink and the lines will be hidden under the watercoloring!

I used the same main image for all four coasters, but I painted/colored them in differently, using the same color scheme. I used the cute teacups from the Spectrum Noir Sparkle EZ Mount Stamp Set Tea Time Treats.  The Spectrum Aqua colors used were Aquamarine, Chocolate, Burgundy, Sunflower, and Gold.

I mentioned earlier about no line watercoloring.  For this process, I used Antique Linen Distress Ink. This color is very light and since Distress Inks react with water, the lines pretty much disappeared as I added in the Spectrum Aquas and water.

And how about those coffee stains? Love them! I inked up the Stamp It Australia Ornate Accessories EZ Mount stamp set with some Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  Then, I stamped it onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping onto my piece.  I wanted the color toned down a bit and not super dark. 

I finished off the design with some Fireworks Summer Sky splatters.  Then, I adhered them to the coaster and coated them with Mod Podge to seal and protect the colored images.

Thanks for stopping by today!
