May is the month of flowers. This week I have two 3-D projects. They are tumbled marble tile coasters. This is one of my favorite projects to make for little gifts for friends.
I stamped the first tile with one of Red Rubber Designs new May releases, Be Fabulous, with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored the image with Fabrico markers.
The back of the tile has a felt coaster glued to it. This gives a smooth surface that will not damage furniture.
The last step was to spay lightly with Krylon Clear Matte Finish to set the ink.
My second tile uses the RRD stamp set Place in My Heart. I stamped the tile using Stazon ink pads - Olive Green, Blazing Red, Mustard, and Jet Black. Then I chalked a little green around the edges with Pebbles, Inc Chalking Set. Because I used chalk I gently misted the top with a Krylon Clear Matte Finish to set the chalk. On the back I glued a thick piece of felt in the shape of a dollie. Sometimes I glue cork on the back.
