January Anything But A Card

Since we have 5 weeks in the month of January....... The Challenge at Come and Get It  is to make anything but a card.  My art project for this week I've Altered Coasters


I started with raw blank coasters that I purchased eons ago and never did anything with so this is something new I'm trying.
I started  inking up the French Script (retired) background stamp from Stampin'Up! with Chocolate Chip dye ink stamping over the entire blank coasters

Then stamp with SU Simply Soft floral image and 2 step stamping the flower petals with Red Riding Hood to make the image pop.  Next stamp butterfly image (unknown) with Black and dry brush Spiced Marmalade (Tim Holtz) color into wings.

Distress the entire background with a Tim Holtz winter collection Evergreen Bough, then I spray misted the 4 coasters with Star Gazer Radiant Rains Iridescent Ink for that elegantly finished sparkly effect. 
Lastly to make sure that all my color stayed on the coasters I sprayed them with Semi-Gloss Krylon Crystal Clear.
