Fabric and stamping is definitely in!
I was inspired by Lin Brown's use of fabric and then a friend, Suzanne, had some fabric odds and ends up for grabs so I thought it must be fate - I'd have to have a go!
I've used Flower Market, one of the new Artistic Outpost plates available from Happy Daze, for the images, plus various quotes from other plates, and I was amazed at how clearly the fabric stamped. I've painted the images with watered down acrylic paints (not too wet or they soak outwards into the material). Then I've stitched and embellished to my heart's content!
Here's the central image, which I've stamped in black StazOn and then done the background in Victorian Velvet:
Look how sharp the tiny text is:
Sorry, realised after this has got a thread over it!
Even stamping on the brown linen, which is quite an open weave, has worked:
And finally, the whole project:
Now I've got to frame it!
Thanks for looking!
