Hobby Coasters: Part Two

The coasters that I'm sharing today were made in honour of my Mum's enjoyment of knitting and drawing/colouring.  I can still remember receiving letters with hand drawn pictures as illustrations from my Mum when I was little and she was in hospital for a short time.  I have lost count of the number of fabulous jumpers she has knit over the years as well as a set of dolls clothes on e Christmas.
The first coaster was a mix of Woodware and Darkroom Door stamps.  The sentiment comes from the Follow Your Art set by Woodware and stamped in Black Soot Archival ink, the pencils were masked off, inked up and stamped individually using the one large stamp with all seven pencils.  To tie in with the sewing and embroidery coasters which I shared yesterday, I used the same colours of Archival ink as before.  On the back, I stamped the Paint Brushes also by Darkroom Door in grey archival ink and added the bespoke hand made by stamp from Claritystamp, which I coloured to tie in with the colour scheme on the backs of all the other coasters.
The knitting coaster used the Made with Love Knitting stamp set by Avery Elle.  I found the sentiment really amusing.  I coloured the ball of wool using the Peeled Paint distress marker and a water brush and lightly brushed the same colour distress ink around the four edges of the front using a stencil brush from Claritystamp.  The reverse of the coaster again consisted of the bespoke handmade by stamp in black archival ink, coloured with distress markers and this time two edges were stamped in grey using the row of knitting stamp from the Avery Elle set.
