PPA 130 A Trivet in Green

This is the link to the PPA Challenge website:

For the color challenge I used a 5.5 inch square tile that I bought at Lowe's Home Improvement store. 

I then directly applied ink by rubbing the ink pad over the whole tile.  I then took the darker artichoke green and applied that to the Hello, Doily stamp (Stampin' Up!) and stamped the image on the tile.

Then using black I stamped the Sentiment "Memories" from Stampin' Up!'s Loving Thoughts stamp set.

I used the "Memories" sentiment because the doily looks faded on the tile, almost as if it is a memory.

I then spray the tile with a few coats of ci Super Seal, an ozone friendly acrylic sealant spray that dries in less than 2 minutes.  It seals and waterproofs the trivet.

The finishing touch is four little stick-on protective pads  (for the feet) that I get at the dollar store.  It works great as a candle base or a hot plate for a bowl.
