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.
