Here are the details for the next class.
Although this tile coaster is broken I still wanted to show it. I used it when it was already broken as I don’t like wasting a good tile coaster, especially when I was testing different inks to work out the best result. This was stamped in memento and coloured in Stampin’ Up! Blends. It was then sealed and I dripped water on it to see what would happen. I was surprised the memento held up and didn’t seem to budge too much but it has faded alot and so has the colouring, so I would suggest the use bright blends to begin with. The flower was coloured in Dark Polished Pink and the butterflies were coloured in Dark Balmy Blue and Dark Fresh Freesia to give you an example of the fading.
This tile was stamped in Memento then the fill in was stamped in Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape. The smudging of the memento is because I stamped too soon after cleaning the tile coaster with Isocol and it was still a bit damp. After I sealed this I did the stamp thing and dripped water over it and it took the colour from the wings and faded the Memento but didn’t smudge it.
This tile coaster was stamped in Staz On and you can see that the colour is still quite vibrant and there is no smudging at all. This is why the class includes Staz On ink.
This one was also done in Staz On. I did second generation stamping for the text stamp which is why it is lighter than the other images. I did end up with some ghosting from the really small flower image but this is more user error of me rocking the stamp. Just goes to show that even those of us with a bit of experience still need to remember stamp straight up and down and no rocking.
