Teacher Gifts...and a challenge CD43

Hello all. I have been working on teacher gifts lately. It is a slooooooow process for me...due to crazy busy schedules lately. I have been doing things in parts. Well today I was able to finish the first of the 6 sets that I have to make for gifts. Oh...I am making tile coaster sets by the way. I purchased the tiles at Lowes. Each set of coasters I am making is different too. Today I have the first set to show you, which I also decided to use one of them as part of The Color Dare challenge this week. This weeks colors are Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, & Green Galore.

This is all of the coasters. I used the gerbera daisy stamp from TAC. I stamped the image with staz-on ink onto the tiles. I used my aqua painter, and ink pads to "paint" the color onto the images. I then sprayed them with polyurethane spray. I used some felt padding I also purchased at Lowes on the backs. I found the padding in the "Castor" aisle. Here is the one I used for the Color Dare.

I colored the stem with the green, the center brown (choc. chip), and rose red for the petals.

That is all for today. I am working on the second set. I will post the other sets as I finish them. Thanks for stopping by.
