A Group of Stenciled Tea Cup Cards

It's Tuesday!  That means it is Artistcellar stencil play day.  I have been creating a lot of those stenciled tea cups on master board paper.  Some became tiny canvases and the rest are being turned into a series of cards like this one.

The technique on this is just like the ones I did the last couple of Tuesdays, just a reminder....

Begin by creating a master board or several different master boards with stamped images, etc.  These can be used for the back grounds.  If you want to do a series of cards with just one master board all of the cards will "match" in a way having a unified look.  Your master board, your choice.

Next stamp your image onto to the cut panel of master board, in my case it measures 4" by 4".

Now bring in the stencils to decorate the background and the tea cup.  Use as many stencils as you like to create lots of texture on each panel and card.

I used Dylusions inks, Memento pens and a black Micron pen to make designs and color them in.

None of the cards or cups are the same which to me makes them all the more interesting and fun!

This was so much fun, now I have the tea cups out of my system and the cards into my Etsy shop!  Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you'll come back next Tuesday and check out some more techniques to use with your stencils.  Hugs ~ Renee xx
