Poker Coaster Set - Think INK #18
The new Think INK challenge (Think Ink #18) has us using paint swatches as either a part of our creation or as inspiration. I decided to make a set of coasters for this challenge and since I didn't have any paint swatches handy, I decided to create a background for my coasters that resembled the swatches.
Not only did I get the chance to use the fun new Game On set by Artful INKables, but I got to use up some scraps and coasters that had been laying around for a while.
For each coaster I cut a strips of red, black and light gray cardstock. These were glued to the circle that gets placed on the back of each coaster. I made sure to leave a little white space between each strip to make it look more like a paint swatch.
To finish off the coasters I used StazOn with each of the 4 images in the Game On set to stamp on the top. This helped to give some extra dimension to the design.
Make sure to check out the Think INK challenge on the Artful INKables blog. You can play along to win a grab bag of AI stamps!!!
