The Everything ABC's blog hop letter C

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter C. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their C element will be featured in their post.

If you came from  Shalana~ Scrappin with Shalana then you're on the right track!

My "C" item is: 


Now, I know you are thinking: didn't she just do coasters? Well, yes I did, but these are a little different. I have a friend (her name is Katt... HI Katt :-)! ) and she makes beautifully decorated tiles
using alcohol inks,and various other crafty items. I took her idea, and put my own spin on it. The tiles 
are 4x4 tiles that are glazed. You can find these at any home improvement store.. I used a Tim Holtz 
alcohol ink in Latte. I put the ink on a pad, and just smeared it around to get the swirley look. This dries fast, so you gotta work fast... Once that dried I got Stazon ink in black, and the beans stamped around the edges is from the stamp set Cup Of Cheer (B1404). The words are stamped in Black Stazon, and they are from stamp set Coffee Shop (D1159). To finish this off, and to make sure everything is set, I sprayed the tiles with a fixative spray.
