BlogStar Asia King is back today with a fantastic project making stamped coasters out of tiles! Enjoy!
I’ve recently had a day of a complete ‘creative block’ so I asked my crafty friends where I can find my mojo again. One of them suggested she always finds hers in a cup of tea . And so right she was!
Today I would like to challenge you to use these gorgeous Stampendous stamps and powders to create unique tea cup coasters.
You will need:
Clear embossing ink, Decopatch glue, matt emulsion paint, decorative napkins, Inktense pencils/alcohol ink based marker pens, smooth ceramic tiles.
1.Split your chosen napkin into single layers. Cover the tile with a thin layer of Decopatch glue and layer the napkin over it with your chosen fragment. Tap it gently to adhere to the tile. When the glue to almost set, smooth out any wrinkles with your hand. Covering the tile with some scrap paper first will prevent accidental tears of the tissue. Let it dry completely.
2. Next, dry brush the covered tile with a thin layer of a matt emulsion paint. This will soften the background image and give the tile a fabric like texture. Allow to dry.
3. Using a water resistant ink (like Archival or StazOn) stamp the piano image in the bottom corner. Embellish the remaining corners with stamped swirls and music notes. Colour the lady’s dress with Inktense pencils or marker pens.
5. Swipe the embossing ink along the side edges and sprinkle with Aged Gold embossing enamel, allowing a small irregular overlap on the top of the tile. Heat set with the heat tool.
6. Cover the tile with a layer of Decopatch glue (or any other glazing medium) to protect your design.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and I look forward to receiving my tea party invites!
