A coaster for Carly

This coaster is for Carly as she prepares for her semester in Italy. 

WHERE SHE IS I WANT TO BE  
(truly!)

 I have always wanted to do a beautiful coaster from this tile piece. I used several colors of Glimmer Mist including Sunshine, Latte, and Dragonfly. I used a couple of colors of Sharpies. The Unity stamps I used are Where You Are, the parachute of May 2010 KOTM, and leaves from Throughout All Generations. I used Stazon Timber Brown and Stampin' Up Craft ink. After it was dry I used Inkssentials Glue N' Seal. I think that I probably canceled the ability of the tile to absorb liquid with the Glue N' Seal but I did not want any of the colors to fade or run.

Beautiful project, I love the colors! I lived in Italy for 2 years, she's going to love it!! Watch out for the gelato pounds, though!
