Tweet Coaster by Mandy C



This week I’ve altered a beer mat using some of the new Distress paints… a lovely pastel combination. 


Stamping Card
Crafter Workshop Mask ~ Mini Well-Rounded


·       Prime your coaster with the gesso. I had to do mine twice. Layer and blend in the Distress paints. Use the Dried Marigold in the centre, Worn Lipstick around the outside and then the Bronze on top. Blend together. Heat dry.

·       Build up some texture using the mask and the gesso. Dry.

·       Stamp one of the Dina birds and the word Tweet onto some stamping card. Colour with watercolours and cut out. 

·       Stamp around the edge of the coaster using black archival and the Crafty Individuals stamp pressing randomly around the edges to add some interest.

·       Adhere your bird and word onto the coaster.

·       Edge first with the Bronze Distress Paint and then the chalk ink.

·       Add some shadowing around the word/bird with watercolour pencils. And a little blue in two of the corners.
