Raindrops ..... On Coasters ....

Those who know me, will know I am a little stamp phobic and only stamp only when I really have to.

Well,  I bought a set of "Designs By Ryn" stamps this weekend - "Water Effects1" from my wonderful local craft shop Pink Tulip Creations, (who by the way are one of only two UK suppliers of this fabulous Canadian range of stamps). The quality and the design of these stamps are truly amazing ...  to say I am blown away by the results is an understatement! I feel as though my stamping confidence has been well and truly boosted and I can't wait to try more of Ryn's stamps.

I used the water droplets stamp on a sheet of Chatsworth paper by PaperArtsy, using a Versafine ink in Vintage Sepia. I then used white acrylic paint and a fine paint brush to add highlights.

The effect was amazing, the droplets look so real. I used the stamped results and covered four round mdf coasters from Candy Box Craft, yes I am a bit addicted to coasters at the moment. I added a few thin coats of Crafters Companion Spray and Shine to to protect the surface. Cant wait to use them when I next have a glass of wine - hope you like them as much as I do. Crafty hugs xx
