DECORATE YER MUG.....LESSology Challenge July 2016:

Not your face! No, this month's LESSology Challenge is to decorate a mug or cup.
Which 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.....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!
Good Luck! Can't wait to see how you get creative with this challenge:)
Blessings~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
