Here is a tile that I made as a gift recently.
I made a tile as a challenge from the Black Cat USA forum Fall/Halloween Crop that I posted about earlier. I liked this project so much that I just had to make another. The challenge was sponsored by Sheri C. You can check out her blog here: http://www.mycardspot.blogspot.com/, where she showcases a variety of cool projects.
I used homemade alcohol inks to color a 4 inch plain white ceramic tile from Lowe's. I made the ink with rubbing alcohol and dye powders that I have on hand for dyeing wool. I love mixing custom colors. I mixed up three fall colors, and layered them on the tile randomly, letting each layer dry before painting on the next one with a foam craft brush. A couple of coats of spray sealer will keep the ink from coming of if it gets wet.
I cut a fall motif from vinyl, using my Black Cat Cougar, and applied it to the inked tile using contact paper as a transfer medium. I had a cellophane gift bag that was just the right size, but of course it needed a topper. I cut the leaf motif topper from black paper, again using my BC Cougar. I attached a piece of orange paper to the back of the topper, to show through on the front.
Here is a photo of the tile in the bag:
