I Just received some 7gypsies papers from Calico Crafts.... I love them and i cant possibly scrapbook over them lol. far too pretty to be covered up. So..... as I had some beer mats lying around (new and unused from calico crafts I must add).... I decided to make some coasters. I made them double sided so if my mood changed i could swap them over. apart from the paper. mats and glue.. I used two colours of Versamagic Chalk inks...
How simple are they.. well 1) glue paper to beermat.... 2) glue on a few more bits cut out from the papers for extra interest 3) blend some Versamagic "gingerbread" chalk ink around the edge allowing it to go in by about a centimeter. 4) blend some versamagic "jumbo java" chalk ink around the edges (not allowing it to go in very far at all but simply highlight the edge) 5) varnish.
Do that on both sides making sure one side is dried completely before flipping over to do the other. and that is it.. but so sweet.... its almost a shame to put the coffee cups on them now.
