I do love to stamp and colour onto ceramic tiles, here is one i did in 2013.
Used JOFY stamps and Fresco paints among other items.
I purchased a few new items from the Happy Stampers North West Show one of which are the Inkadinks by Imagination Crafts.
Instead of using alcohol inks i experimented with the Inkadinks which re water based, they work very well and polish up once dry with a soft cloth. Used the Bright Set as it was the only set they had brought with them to the show. Wanted to keep the background quite soft and muted.
I also added Copper and Gold Ranger Alcohol Mixatives to add a small amount of shine to the background.
The next layer was created using Mushroom DecoArt multi-purpose paint through a TCW Stencil called Mini Rosetta by Rebekah Meier. Heat dried each layer and buffed again.
Chose Darcy’s EDY05 small bobble grass as a border for the tile as i do love the frond like effect it gives. Used Archival Ink to stamp onto the tile as the Inkadinks are water based not alcohol based, also wanted crisp images to pop off the tile.
Treated myself to one of the new Hotpicks 1301EZ and that wonderful large butterfly collage stamp to be the main focal point.
Added colour to the grass and butterfly using Kaiserfusion Alcohol pens. Edged the tile with Treasure Gold Renaissance, had a couple of accidents as you can see near the corners with finger prints, just going with the it…
Sealed the tile with Windsor and Newton Matt Varnish which has given a lovely finish, i will seal this again using a heat resistant varnish.
The tile has no backing as yet as not decided if it going indoors or outside.
