Coasters - Darcy Style (kind of!)

The latest guest designer at Paperartsy is Darcy Wilkinson and boy has she already wowed us with some amazing projects.

The first one, is some shabby chic coasters... I didn't have any cork ones, which Darcy used - and would have been much more suited, and sturdy. I will get some and try again, as this was fun!

 this is my end result...check Darcy's for how it should look!!!!
 I forgot to take a picture at stage one after the original painting... this is after the stencilling.
and then after the stamping, before the "wipe back". You do have to rub quite hard... but not so hard to rub the cardboard away at the edges... see I told you cork would have been better!

Turned out great Helen, so happy you are feeling well enough to play along. Yes you do have to get the rubbing just right, hard enough but not too hard lol. Glad you had fun.
