Rubbermoon Stamps and StencilGirl Hop

Hello Stencil Lovers!
This was a Fun Hop to participate in.
Rubbermoon Stamps are pretty cool!
I chose Afternoon Tea designed
 
 The Rubbermoon Stamp Company is owned by Kristin Powers...
who is also a stencil designer for StencilGirl Products!
 
I used the 4" mini stencil called MidCentury Modern Elements #3.
I used the stencils in the background.

I stamped the image with StazOn Ink onto tissue paper.
The cheap old kind....
I was able to make it reversible.
She could recline in either direction that way.
I decided how I wanted to compose this page
and used Matte Medium to adhere the lady onto the right spot.

I gave her a lamp to read by...
and another plush chair for when company comes.

This is a perfect start to my Daily page for Sunday the 5th.
I love starting a new spread!


 Relaxing and reclining with her cup of tea....
What a lucky Lady!
 
Visit all the Hop Artists
and leave comments on every page.
There is a giveaway involved!
 
Happy Arting!

  4. I love what you did with this. The colors are rich, as usual. You are so good about doing this regularly. I, too, wonder about what kind of tissue you used.

  5. I love using tissue paper with stencils and/or stamps.... I use the cheap dollar store kind with modgepodge or white glue - love the benefit of 'perfect placement'!
    now where did I put my tea bags.... I feel like reclining.

  6. Do you use just cheap ole Dollar store tissue or do you buy from an art supply place?

  7. Hey All! I never thought to mention what kind of tissue paper it is! It is the cheap ole dollar store version! Probably from a Christmas Present last week! Thanks for all the kind words. Art is SO much FUN!

  22. Great tip to use tissue paper for the stamping so you have a choice in how the finished project will look. Have to remember that. Great project. the lady does look comfortable - probably thinking up her next project, or relaxing after finishing one.

  40. I LOVE that technique to reverse an image! Many times I've wanted to use a stamp but it was "facing" the wrong way. This is brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you for teaching us about the reverse image. I know that alot of us will be using that in the future. But wait a minute, how did you know that I'm laying on the couch, drinking coffee on the cold, snowy day with a lamp beside me. Do you have one of those cameras??? LOL. Seriously though, this stamp is awesome. I can see making cards and sending it off to my girlfriends. They'd so love it. Thanks again for sharing this with us.
