Inspiration Mingle

I couldn't get online most of yesterday and talk about withdrawals! I kept coming to the computer hoping it would connect to the Internet - geez I had to find other things to do!
I completed a coaster for this month's inspiration mingle. (Don't peek, Jeri, if you want to be surprised!) Here is the original inspiration piece - a fall plate from Williams Sonoma.

And here is the tumbled tile coaster I made for Jeri's art room. I stamped a script stamp on the background with Staz On and then stamped the leaves with Versamark and heat embossed with various embossing powders. The little blue berries were painted with acrylic paint and the tip of a paintbrush. I also edged the coaster with Archival ink to add some dimension.I'm off to shop and cook for Thanksgiving dinner. Hope everyone enjoys a wonderful Thanksgiving day with loved ones!
