AIR - Canvas Coaster

My last project for this month is  Canvas Coaster.
It is fabric project but no sewing involved.  Easy and inexpensive, fun and usable.

Finished coaster

Cut natural canvas fabric 4"x 4", remove about 10 strand from edges.
Wish washi tape, mask edges

Color background with VersaCraft inks.  First color is KIWI

Add Pale Aqua

Add Celadon
Stamp Flower (Penny Black) With VersaCraft Cool Gray - hard to see on the screen - sorry!
Pale color is used on purpose!!

Color in flower patals with All Purpose Ink Tangerine. Fantastix is great for painting fabric with API.

Patals are done

Trace outlline with Fabrico Marker - Black

and Vines and Leaves with Fabrico Marker Forest

Add All Purpose Ink - Platinum to flower center.

DTP VersaCraft - White to soften the image.

Define petal center again.

When all inks are dried, heat set with iron.

Since I made a tote bag from canvas fabric last month, I have good amount of remnants with me.  I should use them, LOL. 

All Purpose Ink, Fabrico Markers, VersaCrafts are great fabric (and other) ink. Heat set make it permanent.

It's great kids projects too. You can stamp, draw, doodle, or just colors, make a little gift, or, make it rectangle shape for tags.

Hope you enjoy!
