This is, or was, one of my hobbies - to repurpose bowling balls. I painted them, mosaiced them, glued things to them and used them to decorate the yard. I like to think it was to add color to the yard since the deer regularly ate anything we planted, but it was also to add some interest to the landscape. I even did a couple of bowling balls on commission for $. And just like my rubber stamps, I have an accumulation of bowling balls in the basement just waiting to be repurposed. But that's got nothing to do with the teapot challenge so let me move along.
If you check the Teapot post you'll get the full story and when you look at the gallery, you'll be wow'd I'm sure.
The colors of the teapot reminded me of autumn, which it will be in a few days, so I got out my new French Foliage set and an old PSX cat stamp and this time buried the cats in the leaves.
The cat faces are stamped in Basic Gray ink and the eyes highlighted with a Taken With Teal marker. The script and leaves were stamped off once and then stamped with Basic Gray, More Mustard, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, and Pumpkin Pie. I added the lower corner motif to resemble the lid of the teapot. The Taken With Teal strips were "roughed up" to get them some texture.
