Bird Coasters ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Grab a drink for these stamped coasters, featuring the Hope Perches, All Things of Nature, and Script Background Unmounted Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs!

     Each chipboard coaster measures four inches, with a cardstock base, colored with neutral Distress Inks. Then I tore around some white cardstock, and stamped it with the Script Background Stamp, using permanent brown and red inks.

      The birds were stamped in the center, using permanent black ink, with the Hope Perches and All Things of Nature Stamps.

     Then I smooshed the background with Broken China and Tea Dye Distress Inks, using a water brush pen to color the images with various Distress Inks.

     Once I got the images glued to the coasters, I coated them four to five times with Emerald Creek Vanilla Sugar Baked Texture, giving them lots of shine, and a wonderful smell.

     Then I applied a coat of EC Ancient Amber Baked Texture to the edges, followed with a coat of Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder. I just LOVE the effects!

     This set includes six coasters, and would make a great gift for any bird or nature lovers, with stamps from Red Rubber Designs!
