September 10... Serendipity Stamps and tiles




I think that Staz-On and the Adirondack alcohol inks are wonderful! I love that I can stamp on any surface I want to. Today I chose the above stamps by Serendipity Stamps to stamp on tumbled marble tiles that I just picked up at Home Depot. This is a project that was done by Mary Dew Lee at Serendipity Stamps.


First off you will want to rinse off the dust from the tiles and make sure they are completely dry.




Then using a Staz-On ink pad color of choice stamp your images.


I used the Adirondack Alcohol ink and a Q-tip to color in the images.


And there you have it... another great gift idea... perfect with Christmas coming up. I know I'd love to receive these. Maybe I'll use some Christmas images and put them out for the holidays... apples for fall.


Oh yes, and lastly you will want to glue a square of felt onto the bottom so they could actually be used without scratching up your wood furniture.


Thank you to Serendipity Stamps for donating these. (check them out ) One lucky person will win them. Just post a comment for your chance. (before midnight tonight)
