I love this Celia!  I see no signs of crawling either!   I am trying to wrap my head about the tissue transfers and the stencils.  You lay the stencil on the bowl and then apply the dampened tissue over it?

Yes that's about it Roberta. Stencils with the motif being the negative part (the holes). This one was actually some flower wrapping paper that was holey all over and I cut small pieces, laid them around the bowl, cut small pieces of tissue transfer paper, laid on top, sprayed lightly with water, rubbed them gently with a rubber tipped tool, left to dry then peeled off and removed the stencil.

The creamer stencil I made myself on a Silhouette stencil machine, cut from thin plastic film (thin filing wallets) as it's flexible enough for the curves. Same process. Lots of potential and given the price of stencils - quite a good use of them.
