My stamp technique is, stamping on fabric! I recently made a pencil case where I stamped on fabric with A Beautiful Mess emoji stamps, here. I loved the process and so when I was trying to think of my idea for this challenge, I knew I wanted to making something similar, but while trying something new at the same time.
Don't know how to sew? Or don't have a sewing machine? Then this tutorial is for you, here. I used this but instead of glue I did use my sewing machine. The only reason I didn't use glue was because I didn't have it, otherwise I so would of just used glue. My sewing machine and I always get into a fight, haha, I'm not kidding.
MATERIALS USED :
- White fabric
- Mark It - permanent markers
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Sewing Machine
- Stamp Set - Outline It
STEP ONE : watch this tutorial, here.
STEP TWO : once you have your colours picked, colour onto fabric. Always use a scrap bit of fabric first.
STEP THREE : I put my fabric ontop of another bit of fabric. I did this because I noticed when I did my tester the ink soaked through. I also placed both pieces of fabric on plastic, then sprayed a lot of alcohol rubbing.
STEP FOUR : I left mine over night to dry and do it's thing, but I wanted more, so I sprayed again and left for most of the day to dry. Instead of using the top piece of fabric, i used the one underneath. I felt it had more a water colour ink affect. I still plan to use the other for another project at a later date.
STEP FIVE : It's best to iron for a good 5 minutes to set the ink in.
STEP SIX : I then stamped onto the fabric using stazon and the new OUTLINE IT, stamp set.
STEP SEVEN : Since I ironed to set the marker ink, I thought best to iron again, to be safe and set the stazon.
STEP EIGHT : I followed one of these tutorials mentioned above, here.
