Every now and then I feel the need to handle something other than paper or cardboard, which is when I drag out the textiles or the paints or clay... I'm sure a lot of you can relate to what I'm saying! Anyway, I just happen to have a couple of metres of "grubby" calico, hand-dyed by a lovely lady who has a gorgeous little shop at Old Petrie Town - well worth a visit if you are ever in that area of Brisbane. I used some beautiful Prima stamps, inked up with black StazOn, to add the images to the fabric, which actually stamped a great deal easier and clearer than I thought it would. I coloured here and there with my copic markers being very careful to colour well within the lines to give the ink room to bleed across the fabric. A couple of turns in the sewing machine, a length of cotton lace and voila, one pincushion!
