Bugaboo Flower Teddy

Good morning today is Anything But a Card Day at Catch the Bug so I created a coaster with
Bugaboo's Flower Teddy. I printed the image on regular paper and then used carbon paper to 
transfer the image to the coaster. Then I tried colouring with copic, boy did that NOT work! So I erased the colouring with 99% alcohol and started again with water colouring. That worked much better and then finished it with matte varnish. 

Take a look at what the other DT created and then remember to come  back tomorrow for a new release!
I'm entering this into:
Di's Digi Challenge: anything but a card
Crafting with an Attitude: anything handmade goes

Stamp: Bugaboo Flower Teddy
Paper: Tile Coaster and cork bottom
Other: water based ink


  1. Hey Dawn! I think your coaster is fabulous! I never would have guessed that an alcohol marker wouldn't work on this surface. I learned something new today! Have a great week!

    1. Hi Joy, I think the copic markers didn't work because the ink wouldn't absorb. The tile is very smooth in some areas and the markers just streaked, it was awful. Because I can regulate how much ink and water to use in watercolouring it was so much easier!

  2. Dawn, that coaster is awesome. Love your coloring. Very creative!!!

  3. This is adorable!!! And what a fun idea! Love your sky; so pretty! Thanks for playing with Di's Digi Designs.
