I decided it was too boring so I must do something with it. Then one day casually strolling in Hobby Lobby I saw that stamps were 50% off. Score! And then I saw this beautiful peacock feather. Had to have it! I decided I wanted to stamp my scarf with this stamp!! First I practiced on a thin piece of cotton to get used to stamping b/c frankly i have not stamped since I was like in grade school... I also used Tulip's soft fabric paint in brown. I also diluted this to not make it so thick and leave the fabric still flowy.
Stamp!! I placed cardboard underneath to catch the water and paint. As you can see I had 1 plate with my mixed paint. One side is thicker than the other. I stamp on the right side (the thinner side) then I stamped on the other plate (located on the right) then I stamped the fabric.
Close up, I had a few hang ups but overall it was looking good. I realized perfection was not going to happen. Now to do the other side.
OOps! This is what happens when they don't match up. Feathers don't look good
Here is after I was done. I filled in the rest of the scarf with smudges since I got 2 from my stamp.
Let dry! And we are ready!
Now I need to learn how to wear it but it looks fabulous on my red purse! :) Won't mistake my purse for anyone else's!
Hope you enjoyed this. Now I am obsessed with this stamp and would love to create my own fabric..... Oh wheels are turning!!!!
