Altered Beer Mat


An altered Beer Mat made into a little hanger by adding eyelets and a chain.

For the background I used The new Viva product from the shop through one of the crafters workshop masks. It was all then spritzed with color wash inks before I gave it a swish with Picket fence Distress stain, this makes all the colours go muted and very dreamy looking. I then gave it a coat of Glue and Seal. I added a tiny rub of inca gold to highlight the raised mask area.

The lavender sprig was stamped and coloured directly onto the background and the flower bits highlighted with stickles. The Dragonfly is stamped and then layered onto the background, again stickles were used on the wings. The word fly is stamped directly and then covered in Glossy Accents to make it pop a little bit. Trim was added to the bottom.

All stamps used are by Stampotique Originals and they are available in the UK from happy daze and the full range can be seem on the Stampotique Originals site.
