Purple Onion Coasters

Hmmm, talk about Clean and Simple!  They don't come much more C&S than this.  I bought some little coasters in a craft shop, and have had them in my cupboard for a while (along with a few other things I buy to decorate, but never seem to get around to).  Well today's the day for the coasters.

I stamped and coloured some of my new Purple Onion Design images, coloured them in, and then sandwiched them between some brown card and some acetate.  The acetate is so that the coasters can be wiped clean, and no coffee cup stains will get onto the white card.  I debated whether to stitch the layers together, but in the end decided to use mini brads which are really flat on the back.  I then stuck them onto the wooden coasters.  I think they really show off the images.

Here's a picture of one of the coasters before I decorated it:

And here's a close-up of each one in turn:

They are a lovely set Annette, don't think I could bear to use them though in case I hurt their little faces!! xx

These are fabulous Annette... love your colouring of the little images... but like Sarah, I'd not be happy to put my hot cup on them in case I hurt the little creatures!
