Our granddaughter, Ava Rae, is due to arrive on 11/23. I wanted to make something special for her room. These chipboard letters are painted and embellished with hand made paisleys and leaves, and textured flowers made with a clay cutter. It was truly a labor of love and I hope it brightens her nursery.
I used my Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder®, and a flower cutter from the Makin's® Flower & Leaves Cutter Set. Each element was made individually and then added to the chipboard letters.

etchall® Etching Creme
etchall® Stencil ComboPak
etchall® Pick Tool
Electronic die cutting machine (or stencils)
Black ceramic mug
Rub N Buff Silver
Use electronic die cutting machine to cut out text and cat images from etchmask®.
Use pick tool to remove the lettering and cats - we are using the negative space as a stencil.
Cut text and images into two pieces. Use transfer paper from ComboPak to transfer the stencils to the mug. Using the transfer paper ensures you transfer all the small details, centers of letters, etc. easily.
Place scraps of etchmask™ around the stencils to protect surface of mug.
Appy a thick coat of etchall® Creme. Let set 15 minutes.
Return etchall® Creme to bottle. etchall® is re-usable!
Apply Rub N Buff to etched areas to better highlight them against the balck background.
