Stamped Cushion

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!

Wow, this is beautiful Beccy! Stazon, copics and calico instead of paper, sounds easy but I can only image what mine would look like, I have a hard enough time stamping on paper without getting ink everywhere lol. Love your cushion!

Oh Beccy it's so lovely, is there no end to your talents! I don't stamp on fabric but I did draw at the top on a plain white blind a while ago. I copied the pattern of out large tiles in the bathroom, swirls mostly in blue then did a bit of colouring of some.Good to try new ideas as you say :) Viv xx
