Very excited with the colors and the pattern on this one! Kind of “Jamaican” inspired. It was a piece of hand painted material from last summer… and it was rather neon, but perfect in my opinion, for this printing. I can’t wait to quilt it!
I asked my hubby to come outside and photograph so I wouldn’t have to take off my gloves, or get paint on the camera. Clematis vine on the left; sunflowers on the right!
Now this print below, with my new ‘Mum’s The Word’ stamp is in a colorway I adore! Rusty-oranges, turquoise blue, and emerald greens!
To get a good print, it’s really helpful to have a soft surface to press into… but not too soft, so the print doesn’t blur. This is a piece of packing material I re-purposed. You can find ‘foam’ for stamping in the craft store… but I imagine they are at least $10. This was free! And better yet, it works great.
Thanks for stopping by the blog! I will be showing some new brands of paint I’m trying, and some hints and tips for fabric printing. Also… there will be a Give-A-Way to celebrate the “Harvest of Summer!” Although I haven’t decided exactly what the prize (or prizes), may be … if you have a suggestion, feel free to mention it! In the meantime, have a MarveLes day!
