Summer seems to have suddenly disappeared here in England, it's colder and the nights are drawing in. It all means one thing, lots and lots of cups of tea. To be honest the kettle is always hot in my home and there are some days which need copious amount of tea!
This is my design team piece for Roc Nicholas this month, Roc loves making coasters so I thought I would have a try :)
I started with a 4in square piece of really strong cardboard/chipboard. I adhered some patterned paper and then painted all over with PVA glue then immediately on the wet glue I painted a cream coloured acrylic paint. As it dried the cracks and shabbyness appeared. I stamped Roc's brilliant Stacked Cups and Scalloped Lace Border on some white card. Also the cupcake and sentiment were stamped on white card coloured and glued in place. To finish I painted Ranger's glue and seal all over and added some little sequins but a very subtle bling effect.
All of Roc's stamps can be found at the Stampotique online store here
Wishing you a lovely day with lots of tea or coffee if you prefer ;), Sam xxx
