Funky Floral Canvas

We have a new challenge for all you Waltzingmouse fans today on the Waltzingmouse Fanatics blog and the challenge is to use FABRIC - incorporating it into a card or scrapbook page or taking it a different approach like I did and and stamping onto the fabric itself.

This is a natural coloured canvas bag which are very inexpensive to buy and very easy to work with.  I used memento luxe inks in angel pink, pear tart and elderberry and used the branch from two step spring (the veined version - I didn't think the two step would show so well on fabric) and 3 of the flowers from funky flowers and then I just went to town stamping up a flowing vine of flowers and leaves.   You do need to pop a piece of card inside the bag to make sure ink doesn't go through to the back but other than that, no special tools required.

Once dry (give it a good few hours or you can make a mess) then you can heat set the ink with a hot dry iron (no steam) and then the bag is washable at 30 degrees.   You can do the same thing with tea towels, hankies and even jeans ;-) 

I hope you're all inspired to get stamping on fabric - we can't wait to see what you come up with!

  4. I have not stamped on fabric in a long time - this brought back memories for me. Very pretty tote bag, Tara. I have not seen the Luxe stamp pads yet - must keep a watch for them. They seem to stamp beautifully on fabric.

  5. What a beauty Tara! That'll perk up the supermarket shopping experience no end! Vicky x

  6. Beautiful bag, love the colours! The inks worked brilliantly and lots of ideas to try :)
