The first mistake I made was I bought the smooth ceramics-- the ink from the stamps don't stay on this. So I decided to take out the scrap booking paper and Mod Podge.
I started by painting the back of the tiles a neutral color.
Then I stamped the green paper with "From the Heart". I let this dry overnight. Then I put a layer of mod podge on the front of the tile and added a square of scrapbooking paper. I put a layer of Mod Podge on top of that and put the green tag on top and then added more Mod Podge. After drying for 8 to 10 hours, I added a final coat of Mod Podge, allowed it to dry and sprayed the coasters with an acrylic clear coating to water proof it. I stuck some felt to each corner to prevent them from scratching the surface.
Since that set I have made more using napkins or fabric instead of scrap booking paper. They turned out nice as well. For these, I used an unfinished tile- they are thicker and have a rough texture which is great for the thin napkins. I used the same technique so I am just going to show you pictures.
This is a nice spring/ summer coaster.
This one is actually done out of fabric.
This one is a napkin that I am using on a grey tile. It is larger than the other tiles and will make a great tile to put on display or to use on the stove for laying hot items.
