More and More

This week is the most productive week for me because I'm rushing to complete the enough numbers of the coaster as a Christmas for my work colleague.

And finally I managed to complete all by yesterday and I had distributed all in the office today.  Such a relief and I hope that they will it.

When I first look at this stamp, I straight away think of making an ancient map base on the map and now it is just nice to fit in this 3.5" x 3.5" coaster.  After I finished with the map stamping I realised that the map look a bit empty and pale, so I decided to add the colors of the sea and land.  I'm not using any color pencils or watercolors but I used distress ink and cut n dry foam instead.  Surprisingly it turned up with an amazing effect and so blend in with the background.  Good try ne...
I wanted to try the new Hero Arts shadow ink and that is why the whole piece of Seahorse coaster was created.
I begin with stamping the background with the Soft Pool shadow ink on a piece of A4 paper.  Good thing about this shadow ink is quick dry and not watery.  They come in 8 very nice soft colors and your can get it now from Hero Arts.
After completed the background, I pasted it on the coaster and started the 2nd layer of stamping which is the concerto background.  I used Turquoise color from Ancient Page, so you can see the two stamping with different colors.
And come the last one which is the Seahorse image and the wording of "By the sea, by the seam by the beautiful sea.  I used Deep Lagoon from Versfine for the Seahorse to stand out the image.   And here is the beautiful sea...

This is the most simple one.  I used the Twilight from Brilliance, stamped it and pasted it on the coaster.  This is the lasted rubber stamp from Hero Arts.
