I used the retired Stampin' Up set called Stipple Flowers which is a set of 8. Using Staz On ink made them really easy to color without smudging. To color I used my much neglected Prisma pencils and gamasol to blend just a bit. The gamasol did not blend the shadowing on the flowers and leaves well. It did however blend the background colors to make them much smoother. After coloring, I coated the front and sides with 2 layers of Mod Podge glossy.
The magnets I used are super duper strong. This one magnet will hold up to 5 sheets of paper or 3 sheets of thick paper, such at tickets to plays (which is what I am using one for right now).
The kids (well, all in their 20's) bought my husband 2 tickets to see Fiddler On The Roof for his birthday. Funny, he is not artistic at all. Can't clap to music or even get the simplest of poems. yet, he loves musicals, especially this one. One of these magnets hold so well, there is no chance of misplacing the tickets or that they will fall off and blow under the refrigerator, lol
Anyway....I adhered them with a small dot of E6000 which is the duck tape of glues, lol. It adheres anything to anything, but is really to thick for using on paper. I love this stuff. It is definitely a must have for every craft room :o)
here. Like I said, they are super strong and are relatively inexpensive compared to any other magnets I have seen. This particular size came in a package of 24 for $10.39, that is only .44 each!!! I think the price has actually gone up since I bought these. They are 1/2 x 1/16 ", the perfect size for this size mini tile.
If you haven't tried stamping and coloring on tumble tiles yet, go ahead and give it a try. It is SUPER EASY! You can by 4 x 4" tiles at Home Depot or Lowes. I made my daugher coasters for her first apartment with these, which you can see here, on my old blog. I also made some using napkins instead of stamping here, again on my old blog.
Have a great day! Hugs,
