Tumbled Tiles...Nature Walk

I just can't figure out what is happening in my stamping world.  Suddenly I am choosing things that are completely surprising me...buying fabric, the Easter Blossoms Stamp Set, sewing...and I even fell in love with the Nature Walk stamp set.  Driving down to Hartford for Regionals last weekend, I did my share of complaining about the stamp set the Stampin' Up! chose to use.  Really not my style and it would just sit in my closet.  Well...I've added a card to my class this afternoon that uses it, I did these tumbled tile coasters and stamped on some fabric.  Who knew?  This vintage look is really growing on me and I enjoy doing a few new techniques I've learned.  I wish there were more time in my week to stamp and create, going to work everyday is a bit rough!

How to:  Tumbled Travertine 4"x4" tiles (Home Depot...9 for $3.97)
Stamp line art image in Black Stazon Ink...I used Nature Walk stamp set
Color in with Poppin' Pastels...I layered a number of colors on and blended with my fingers.  I was looking for a pretty organic look.
Spray with Matte Protective Finish
Adhere felt or cork on the bottom to protect your furniture.

This makes a great craft fair item or gift...They are quick and easy! 
Happy Stamping!
