The new Texas Blueprint stamp is the perfect size for making coasters. These came from Home Depot for under $5 for 8 or 10 and from my experience, 5 or 6 are useable. The others were a little rough around the edges and some have larger holes or cracks in the tile.
I stamped the image in black or brown Stazon ink and used a little more brown and burnt orange for some texture. I also went around the edges which were a little too white. I think they would also look good in a dark blue but I didn't have that Stazon pad. I did spray these with a clear coat but if you do that, I think it looks better to use a flat or semigloss spray rather than glossy.
Here's a card using the same Texas Blueprint stamp as well as some others for a collage-style background. I cut out the shape of Texas as well as the word 'Texas' so that the background wouldn't overpower the main image.
When I drew up this stamp, I intentionally chose a font that would look like handwriting so if you live in Dime Box or Cut And Shoot, you can add your own dot and write in your city.
