Beer mats to coasters

 I needed some new coasters so what better than old beer mats to start with.
I used a collage background from a set i created for Dezinaworld (the background set is called Backgrounds Deluxe and will be launched next month ) I printed it off twice and covered both sides of the beer mat. I distressed the edges slightly with metallic rub in colour in green and copper and then used Glossy accents over the whole of both sides to give a varnished look.

These are very cool! What a great little treat to make and stick in a card to send to a favorite someone. Since we have tons of 'boys' in the house these would be great. I don't know how much they would get used (guys never use coasters LOL)

You could do all sorts of images on there. LOVE IT!
