On to todays project... At least twice a month the Hubby and I go out to thrift stores and flea markets, we would go more if he got his way. Anyway one such day we ended up at the Habitat for Humanity Resale Store and I gound these cute litte octagon shaped tiles. I thought, there has got to be something I can do with those and hey they were only 25 cents each so I picked up a few dollars worth. Well I figured out what I was going to do with them a couple of days ago and you get to see the results. I decided that I was going to make coasters with them so I called everyone into the craft room and told them to pick out their favorite Halloween stamps so that each of us could have our own coaster!
Of course my Daughter picked out the Skull and my son the cat. For the skull I used alcohol inks, slate, currant, and meadow to dotted them all over. Then stamped the image with SU white craft ink and then embossed with white embossing powder! The cat was stamped with black stazon and then colored in with paint pens. The pumpkin patch is for me and the hubby, I only took a picture of one though. It was also stamped in stazon and colored with paint pens. I then sprayed them all with a matte sealer so that they wouldn't peel, or chip when used.
