Good morning and happy Monday. We're continuing with our Christmas in July theme over at the Ink Art Designs Stamping Playground and I've made some fun Christmas coasters.
Yes, I found my old box of kitchen tiles at the back of the garage so out they came to play. I painted them with PaperArtsy Fresco's then added some stencilling in white, all ready for the stamping!
Don't you just love this zebra! He's from a Katzelkraft set which can be found here in Dot's shop. There are three stamp sets used here, Jungle Animals, the Accessories, and Noel Keep Calm. I made a bit of a rookie error on this one. I edged my words with a black Sharpie and then varnished my tiles. Of course, solvent varnish on top of a solvent pen equals smudges - Doh! Now I'm not going to say I'm glad it happened, but I don't think it looks too bad. In fact, if I hadn't told you what had happened you would think it was meant to look like this, so forget I said anything!
Here's everyone's favourite Grumpy Penguins who have been teamed with hats and scarves from The Accessories, and a Stampotique sentiment.
Here's Gangnam Christmas Style, I'm not fond of the words in that order so I stamped them out and chopped up and re-arranged.
And last but not least, here's my Christmas Donkey! He's from the Farm Animals set. Do you like the crackle? I don't know how it happened. It had the same Tripple Thick varnish as all the rest, but this one crackled. I don't mind, I think it looks quite nice.
I must admit these did make me smile when I saw them, but they're all packed up now ready for Christmas. Of course, I'll lose them way before then, and find them again sometime in the New Year lol.
Have a very happy day whatever you are doing, and thanks so much for looking x
