Christmas Coasters

I've gone back and forth on this challenge.  Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it.  All of the time I think there must be a better way.  

The cork I bought for the coasters is about .25 inches smaller than the coaster.  The ink smudges way too easily.  I wasn't happy with most of the stamps I have. Then when I went to seal the ink it all ran from the Kyrlon sealer.  I had to wipe it all off and start again.  I don't really like the way these turned out.  I'm not certain I'll try this again.

Head to your home improvement store for some ceramic tiles, and create coasters for yourself!

I'm sorry you had such a tough time with this challenge! Staz-On ink won't run, because it is a solvent ink. It does come in colors other than black, though that is the most commonly used color. I used Bic or Sharpie markers to color in my images, and they are also permanent and don't bleed with the sealer. I hope this will make the project more fun for you...though I admit, it does take several tries to get a real crisp image sometimes! Thanks for trying, and being a really great part of the Christmas Around the Clock project at Cuttlebug Challenge!
