"Blue Moon" Time at Gingersnaps

Hello, it's a special time - there are 5 Wednesdays in the month of August so we are treated to a Gingersnaps Creations "blue moon" challenge.  The brief was to create something from a past Art Exchange which Gingersnaps run over on their Yahoo group....all details can be found on their blog!

My fellow design team buddies have as usual excelled at this challenge.  I decided to go with the altered coasters in a romantic theme, the brief was to include a heart back in February earlier this year.  My coasters were another charity shop find...4 solid wooden coasters for 50pence.  Here I have painted and decorated two of them....


Stream and Denim acrylic dabbers were used and overstamped with a Debbie Moore stamp.  Faux metal hearts were made using mirri card, alcohol inks and Stazon.  They were cut and embossed through the Cuttlebug. 


The gorgeous female images are from Marianne D Designs.  There is inked scrunched tissue paper in the background and punched flowers, sentiments and lace added.


I am also entering my coasters into the following challenge:-


You have a month to play along at Gingersnaps Creations and create your Once in a Blue Moon piece, check out the other challenges too along with the amazing artwork that is displayed there......Have a good day!  Suzanne ~x~
