The green is on a board I got from Dollar tree. I painted it, let it dry 24 hours, then coated it with matte finish. when it dried I applied the vinyl and added a ribbon. I think the green and brown look nice together. Here is the same working, but on a ceramic tile. It has a picture hanger on the back. I just hope it stays on. It has been on there for a couple of weeks, but i had put one on another tile, and it got cold and the picture hanger came off. maybe if its not in my cold basement it will be ok. cross your fingers. LOL
This is a rose that I cut out in vinyl with my wedding cartridge. I then weeded the rose out of the vinyl. threw away the rose, and used transfer tape to put the rose on the tile. 4x4 size. I used alcohol inks to put the flower on the tile. let it dry a few days and sprayed a very light coat of matte finish on it. let it dry another day. then i put several layers of matte finish (like 4) so it won't bleed when I use if for a coaster.

Moose Tile

We used etching cream on the brown shiny tile to put the moose on it. It looked like it wasn't doing anything at all. I left it for 45 minutes or so thinking it wasn't working. when we washed it off, I could't see it at first, and then boom there it was. placed the tile on a larger tile that is brown/beige colors too. I think I will find some brown sheer ribbon to attach to the back. I think it turned out nice.

tiles we played with yesterday

These are with alcohol inks. they are a green color. I am giving these for a Christmas gift this year. Stomie and I had a fun day of crafting together.
