It's been a wicked 5 weeks here. I have both sciatic nerves pinched and have been struggling to walk let alone blog and visit. I finally realized it was time to take time off of my day job and look after me and am starting to heal thanks to some amazing IMS treatments. Enough of that...just wanted you to know I am still here.
This project was one of the make and takes at the last Pampered Crafter's Retreat and is perfect for Christmas gift giving! The ladies were surprised at how easy it was to stamp and paint on fabric!
2~Using an Ink Blusher, ink Canvas Flower with Memento Luxe Nautical Blue.
3~ Stamp Impression Obsession's Beautiful Life D8699 with Memento Luxe Nautical Blue. To accentuate the words "friends", I added a little extra ink over the word friends with an Ink Blusher.
4~ Lay out your ribbon and lace to figure out where to stamp your image and then remove them. I used a Stampamajig to remember the exact spot to stamp.
5~Ink Impression Obsession's Hang In There F8726 with Memento Luxe Nautical Blue. With an Ink Blusher I removed some ink on the right side of each bird to create a shadow. Stamp image on apron.
6~ I adhered some ribbon strips with Allene's Fabric Glue. Using a Fantastix paint the close pegs with 52 Sand All-Purpose Ink, leaving a some unpainted areas for highlights.
7~Using a Fantastix, paint over the 52 Sand All-Purpose Ink with 74 Champagne Mist All-Purpose Ink. This gives a nice subtle shimmer.
8~ Adhere the rest of your embellishments and iron with a dry iron on high to heat set. My iron looks like it has water in it was empty. I put a piece of copy paper in between the iron and the apron. I ironed the inked/painted images for 2 minutes on each side.
Here are some close ups of the embellished areas....
