Stenciled Teacups

It's Tuesday, time for stenciling!  I am still creating little stenciled teacups using different Artistcellar stencils, combining them for backgrounds and decorations on stamped teacups.  This is similar to the one I created last week, the same color palette but different designs.  If you have time, sit down with a cuppa and take a look at my process.

This process started just like the one last week with a piece of my master board.  My master board has stamped images on it in different shades of blue and pink inks.  To begin I cut a piece measuring 4" by 4" and then stamped a teacup image on the paper.

When the ink is dry I started using stencils to make the designs and lines that I would color in or doodle designs in later. 

 First I completed the background with different stencils using Dylusions spray inks in a water brush type pen.  I used a Coral stencil with Fresh Lime ink.  Then I used the X's stencil with a deep yellow Memento marker called Dandelion.  When I was finished with the background I drew a horizon line with a Micron black pen.  I used the same pen to doodle in a design on the bottom portion of the cup.  I colored in the teacup with Dylusions Bubblegum Pink ink and Vibrant Turquoise.  The Memento Marker in Dandelion was used on the handle and other parts of the cup and saucer.  I made the teabag out of a tag and a piece of twine.  The phrase was part of a longer DR phrase just cut out, inked the edges of it and after gluing it on I anointed it with a coating of Clear irRESISTIbles Pico Embellisher.  The only thing left to do was ink the edges with StazOn Chai permanant ink.  Chai seemed like the perfect color to use!  Then I adhered my little water color panel to a  blank 4" by 4" canvas.

  Now I have two.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hoped you enjoyed seeing how I use my stencils.  I like getting the maximum value out of my supplies and using them in unusual ways does it for me.  I'll have another stenciling idea to share with you next Tuesday, hope to see you then!  Hugs~Renee

  4. How fabulous this style is.
    I like that the teacup stamp has quite a hand-drawn appearance to it, in fact you had me fooled as I thought you had drawn the teacup.
    What a great idea to use a stencil in this way.
    You have such an effortless way of creating dynamic art.

  5. Oh Renee. Those are so colorful. I love the mixing of stencils. Now we should have a real cuppa together.

  6. These are fun! Love using the same stamp and getting such different results with your stencils.
