StenDoodle An Oreo...


Okay, I admit, the title of this blog post is a bit misleading.  I didn't really StenDoodle an Oreo cookie.  Just the name.  You see, I have a problem.  A BIG problem.  I LOVE Oreo cookies.  Original Oreos are fine but Double Stuffs?  YUM!!!  And Double Stuffs are not available here in Brasil - yet.  Of course, I have friends that like to tease me by putting almost anything Oreo related up on my Facebook page.  (Barbara Brisken and Wayne Gartley - you know who I am talking about. LOL)

This morning, Wayne Gartley, owner of Viva Las Vegas Rubber Stamps (an AMAZING store in Las Vegas, by the way) put this picture on my Facebook page - 


My mind started to turn.  I let him know that if this logo printed out well, I was going to Stendoodle it.  Well, it printed out just fine. 


And then I got to work...a few StencilGirl Stencils....some Tombow and Sharpie markers...a black permanent marker....FUN!!


First stencil used on the "O" is Circle Rays 6 by StencilGirl Products.


Next stencil used is in the "R" is Squared On 6 by StencilGirl Products.


And then I went back and added my favorite stencil - Aiden's School Stencil by StencilGirl Products inside the Squared On 6 stencil. 


Next stencil used in the "E" is Throwing Stars 6 by StencilGirl Products.  After tracing one way, I turned the star and traced the corners to change the stars on the stencil. 


Final stencil used in the last "O" is Eddy Rose 6 by StencilGirl Products.


This is the final look before I did the coloring.


I then colored in the piece with a mixture of Tombow markers and Sharpie Fine Tip markers.  I also went around the outline of each letter and each of the layers with the black permanent marker to make it pop a bit. 



What do you guys think?

  3. OMG! I love it! I am sooooo sorry that you do not have Double Stuffs in Brasil. I am extemely partial to this because my cat is named Oreo. He was nicknamed mini oreo as a baby and he blew up after being neutered. He is now 11 and over 15pounds. His nickname has been double stuff for 9 years. I need to make him his own sign! :) Thank you for sharing this.
