Tile Magnets

Feeling a bit under the weather today and really wasn't wanting to get into making a card but remembered I had these blank tiles which were left over from the Relay For Life Bazaar back in November and just recently rediscovered them in my closet of "Items To Make" bin LOL!!! I had forgotten how complicated these could be. You have to use a solvent ink like Stazon to first stamp the image and then making sure when you place the stamp on the tile it didn't slide and become blurry. Took me a few tries to get them right. Thankfully as soon as you remove the stamp and it is blurry you can quickly wipe the tile with a dab of stamp cleaner, dry it and try your luck at it again. LOL!!! My Granddaughter is crazy about anything that has to do with Princesses and in all honestly I had forgotten I had these stamps which I was able to get from Target last year through a dear friend. The Princess stamps are made by EK Success and the
other two with the group are Verve Visual and
Inkadinkado. I used Sharpie and Bic Markers to color them in as the Copics and Prismacolors will not adhere to the slick white tiles, but will adhere to the lightly tanish tiles as they have a bit of texture to them. If you haven't tried them, give it a shot. Have a great Sunday.
