This week's Shopping Our Stash challenge is Heavy Metal...so crank up the Motley Crue and get your headbanging craft on!! Click on the link to the blog above for all the details on the challenge and to show my rockin' SOS teammies some crafty love.
I am not exactly sure what this project is...but I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Before Christmas I had painted a few 4x4 coasters with chalkboard paint, I am sure I had a plan for them but I have no idea what...so on my desk they sat.
I rubbed the coaster all over with white chalk then wiped off the excess, I wanted it to look like a well worn chalk board. Then I stamped the sentiment in white craft ink and heat set it.
Next I added the ribbon (ya I hand stitched that!!!) and finally went to town with some metal embellishments. I thought it needed a little something more so I added the button and frayed twine.
