Friday, one day closer to the weekend.  I'm sure most of you are with me when I say I love weekends. :) 

The other night I worked in the stamp room and managed to get a bit of work done.  I am working on getting not only my stamp room organized but myself as well. That's a tougher task LOL

I had a tile coaster class last night so I wanted to be able to show some samples of various colouring mediums used on the tiles.

The truck coaster has a couple different colouring mediums on it. First the truck is stamped in Staz On Black ink.  The front of the truck was coloured using chalk and a paintbrush. The grass is coloured with a marker.  The windows, bumper and wheels were coloured using an ink pad and paintbrush.  You can see the difference in intensity using these different mediums.

The 'Taygan' coaster was also stamped first in Staz On black ink.  The name is coloured in using Stampin' Write Markers and the images were stamped using regular classic ink.

When I began the class I quickly showed everyone how to stamp and colour and also let them know that background stamps were also a great way to go.  Here is the one I did in less than five minutes:

Everyone had  a great time and asked that I hold another coaster class so needless to say I have one scheduled for early April. :)
