What great joy to print your own fabric. This is probably the best by-product of my stamp-carving adventures. And it came to me by accident, too! I remember that I just picked up the idea to stamp on pieces of canvas because I had already cut them. There was no point on letting fabric go to waste but I was not really expecting to get good results. But I did and now I can’s stop.
Here are my latest handstamped purses:
The curved bottom purse was stamped with this Baroque design. This is one of my older stamps. I didn’t think that it would look nice stamped on fabric but it does. I have come to realize that when it comes to stamping fabric, outlines work best.
The dreamcatcher purse is a result of a new stamp. In fact, this was a stamp that I carved only five days ago. I’ve always found feather challenging to carve, especially since my goal is to print on fabric. However, I found out that not putting too much detail will give you the best results.
So the stamping lessons from today’s post are:
Outlines work best.
It helps not to overthink details.
