Not all cups/mugs need to be 3D especially if you don't need to use it for drinking...*winks* Confused? Let's take a look at designer Lizzy Hill's creative take on LESSology Challenge #60: Mug Shot!
Hi there! So, this month's challenge was very challenging for me! Have you noticed I tend to be more a LO peep than Off the Page? But a MUG....well, apart from my face.....which is a sort of mug.....
well... this had me truly stumped.
Light-bulb moment. What about a MUG CARD? Searched the internet. Found a cup card template.
Got my Bro [that is, my Brother Scan'n'Cut] out & we went to town. Figuratively speaking, that is!
Here's a few 'process' shots:
Covered the cut out shape in pretty patterned paper! Then, found some old tissue paper & spied the butterflies.
Fussy cutting commenced. Have you tried it with tissue paper? It AIN'T easy!!
Inked up some bits of lace I had....
then I'd seen a tutorial from FILIZLOVESPAPER HERE. It's about using stickers to create your own embellies. Soooo..... to make some of the butterflies, the teapot & the tag:
This is what I did:
Paints on a brayer & slapped on some acrylic paint. Then...stamped randomly over top once dry:
Then fussy cut or die cut or punch out shapes! Looks brill. Easy peasy, too. Before I attached the labels to cardstock:
Right! So lots of recycled stuff used..... & teacup sorted!
Luck! Can't wait to see how you get creative with this challenge:)
