I seem to have collected lots of stamps in the last year since I started blogging and love all of them so it was quite difficult to chose the ones to use for this project.
My choice was Swirly Birds from Personal Impression
I had some very old coasters that had been used as drip mats under plants for a few years and they definitely needed a make over.
Firstly I painted them with matt emulsion then dabbed a little distressed ink here and there and worked that into the emulsion while it was still wet. When all that was dry I stamped on the birds and a few leaves, painted a 'sky' and did the edges with gold paint. The little bits of wood and canvas were an after thought but add a bit of texture.
Do visit Florence, Sandra and Janet's blog and see how they made their challenge projects for this week they always come up with something terrific.
