Day 7: Make a stencil and use it in your work

We recently acquired a new coffee machine, and I was inspired to make a stencil that would turn an ordinary cappuccino into a cute cappuccino.

I started by sketching a simple chibi face using a brush-tip marker:

I scanned this into my computer, did a quick vector trace, and sent it to the cutter:


Then it was a matter of (with Heidi’s help) frothing some milk and sprinkling chocolate powder through the stencil. Voila!

Unfortunately, I’m not a big coffee drinker and Heidi always has a morning latte. So I’m not sure how much use this stencil is going to get beyond today.
