GIU day 4~ Tile

Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:13 AM
Good morning friends. Welcome to my GIU day 4. Today I have for you a tile/coaster I made using stamps from a Unity Kit of the month and a sentiment ( also from Unity) . I got these tiles at Home Depot for 30 cents each!! I like the unfinished look of them but you can get smooth ones. I stamped the images in Versafine and let dry completely. I then Colored using Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I have seen people cover these in modge podge but I always leave mine plain and have never had a fading problem. I can't wait to give this to my friend to use at her house. Come back tomorrow to see a wood burning project!

Cynthia said...

A lovely coaster for sure! I am excited to see what your project is for tomorrow!

Shannon Edwards said...

So cute. Do you use cork or felt on the bottom to keep them from scratching the surface underneath?

Selena said...

So cute! I've made a bunch of coasters like this before but I always seal mine with Minwax so that it's water resistant. I love the stamps you used and agree, they make wonderful gifts! :) Such fun project!

Denise Hartley said...

What a great idea. I have a million ideas already. Next time my husband drags me into Menards I'll be shopping too.

Lisa Burke said...

Coasters are not my thing...but you certainly do an outstanding job - anyone who receives that would be truly blessed!
