Let me tell you what makes my brain do a happy dance….butterflies, teals & blues and making coasters. So today’s project is a combination of all three and guess what? I’m happily dancing away with the results!
I’m building up a lovely collection of butterfly stamps and this one from IndigoBlu does not disappoint! Each coaster you make will be slightly different than the previous, but that just adds to the handmade look – you can’t buy these in the shops. Using gesso to prime your wooden coasters will make the perfect base for you to stamp and watercolour.
Something I forgot to demonstrate in the video was adding your coloured edging – add this before you seal with spray varnish by touching the edges to your ink pad. Being very careful not to get ink on the front and back of the coaster – we just want the colour on the sides!
Thank you for dropping by today. If you have enjoyed today’s project and don’t want to miss the rest of the series, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel. You can also find me on Facebook and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have – I try to reply to as many comments as I can.
