Voila!

Today we have a cute little coaster I made with the stamp set Voila! I think this little man is so cute. Actually this is my mom's set, but because she's not a stamper, she lets me hold on to it for her. She's decorating her kitchen with this little guy, and I'm going to be stamping some tiles for a backsplash for her. I think I'll just put different stuff on the tray each time, so it's kind of a random pattern.

I made a set of 4 coasters and bundled them together with twine and a gift tag, but didn't think to take a picture of the finished package. Oh well, maybe I can add that in here later. Do you guys have any suggestions about stamping on tile for a backsplash in a kitchen? I plan to seal the tiles with a clear spray sealer. Do you think I should bake them first to set the ink better? I'd hate to get them up there and then when she cleans the ink rub off or smudge, kwim? Guess that's all for now. Have a great day!

Carrie, I think I'ld bake them first to be safe and then seal them. I'ld love to see a picture of your moms kitchen when you get them up.

Yes, I would bake them...or zap them for quite a while with your heat gun and then seal it. Great job on this, your coloring is fantastic!
