Butterfly Drink Coasters

Hello my crafty followers!
  I am super excited to share with you a gift I made for 
a friend! Shhhh, Don't tell her!

For this project I used the Butterfly Sentiments stamps set.
Brutus Monroe  Premium Chalk inks: 
4X4 Ceramic Tiles
Heat gun

I started by stamping one color of the butterfly image at a time.

After each color, I used my heat gun to quick dry each color before 
applying the next to avoid smudging.

I repeated the same technique using a second butterfly image.

I set them aside to dry on their own for approximately 2 hours. I then wanted
to permanently set the ink into the ceramic tile, so I baked them in my oven
at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Please use caution when removing them
from the oven!  After allowing them to cool completely, I tested them out
by hand washing them with a mild dish soap. Guess What? It's permanent!!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on Ceramic coasters.
I am simply amazed with the endless possibilites with these inks!!

Happy Crafting, Jen
