Coasting along...

That is the second Serendipity Stamps project for this month!

This may be my first project that looks better in the photo than in real life. I had to get online and look up tutorials and find out what the best coloring choices were and I went with chalks, and I'm not super good with them.

Lemonade Picture Serendipity Stamp (989G)
Tile Coaster
Black Staz On ink
Heat Tool

1. Stamp image on tile with Staz on ink. Set with heat tool.
2. color in image with chalks.
3. Set oven to 300 degrees and bake tile for 20 minutes. Allow to cool in the oven.

Now many a website told me that baking the tile would set the ink and chalk permanently, well I can still run my finger over it and come away with color? And other sites said that sealing the tile is a bad idea because it loses it's ability to absorb moisture? Any ideas on that, I'd be happy to hear them!

On to our other designers for the month,
I can't wait to see what they came up with!

Very cute, Amy! The coloring is very vibrant! Try a clear coat of spray paint - it should help keep the chalk ink from running.

This is darling Amy! Your coloring is fantastic! I have always sprayed mine with Krylon Sealer and it has worked just great!

I love this image for the tile coaster Amy, and I think your coloring is gorgeous.
