Here is my creation

I really wanted to use cups in my make, and as I didn’t have any I designed some and then cut them out on my explore air2


Now I had my cups I chose my stamps I’ve listed those at the bottom along with all other materials 


I chose colours which I know would add contrast and interest. Starting with my backgrounds I carefully painted around the stamped images.


Next I used the ink to paint the images, I loved blending the colours to add shade by varying the value of the colour.
I measured the cups and Andrew cuts to allow them to sit inside each other


I knew I wanted to stick them onto yet another contrasting colour which I also added touches of Brushos to for more interest.



The background sheet was then mounted onto blue card which was stuck onto an actual card. I kept the blue card the same size as I didn’t want a white border. I designed my quote  cut it out, and arranged it on to finish.


To finish, once everything was completely dry using a black pen I added a border around my cups to give a stamped effect.
One last look at the finished piece.

Here’s what I used:



And now the links for today’s line up







I hope you have lots of fun dancing your way round this colour spectacular 

Take very good care
Hugs xx

  9. It's LOVELY Debs. I love how you made the design for each cup smaller as the cup got smaller - it's adds such a nice dimension. Some folks wouldn't have thought of that!!! Also love the bright colors - who needs a dainty t-cup!!! I would love to have a nip out of any one of your creations!!! Xj.
