Christmas Holly Tile Coasters
Another coaster design…
These coasters were made with Premier Decor 4×4 Ivory Travertine tiles I purchased at Home Depot. The images were stamped with Stazon Timber Brown ink and stamps from the Heartfelt Creations “Elegant Holly Swirls – HCPC 3339” set (retired?) and the Gina K Designs “Merry Little Christmas” set. Then I inked the edges with a sponge dauber.
Using the reverse masking technique, I created a stencil of the holly leaves by stamping the image on a piece of scrap paper and hand-cutting/removing just the leaves . Then I dabbed on Stazon Forest Green ink with a sponge dauber. I used a foam eye shadow applicator (the pointy tip) to dab on red Stazon Blazing Red ink for the berries since hand-cutting a stencil for these tiny shapes was too difficult.
Once the ink was dry, I used a Tombow sand eraser to lightly sand the stamped images and edges to soften them up a bit.
Thanks for checking out my coaster project post!
