A Raven Pocket - Stamping on Fabric
I get asked a lot if you can stamp on fabric. And unfortunately it's not a simple yes or no answer it depends on a lot of things; the image, how much detail you need, the ink used, the fabric you are stamping on, and the surface. This is an example of a large image, The Large Raven, and "Nevermore." stamped with Jet Black stAzon, on muslin fabric. As you can see not all of the detail was captured onto the fabric, but the overall outcome is pretty spiffy.
This is was a quick little project my sister and I worked on before our local parade - you wouldn't believe how much candy fit into that pocket! This may not answer all of your fabric-stamping questions, but it gives you an idea of one project idea that combines sewing with stamping!

Mixed Media Hoop Art - Rocking My Gypsy Soul
I am frequently asked if you can use our stamps on fabric and today I have a wonderful project by The Creative Goddess, Vicki O-Dell, that shows how detailed you can get our images to stamp on fabric. Vicki has created a sample of of the Gypsy Dancer on muslin, and then created a lively piece of mixed media art within an embroidery hoop. Look at how beautiful the gypsy dancer looks simply stamped on the fabric...
If you visit Vicki's blog, The Creative Goddess, you can read the full tutorial on how to create this project (to be aired on Scrapbook Soup). This vibrant piece of art sure does tell a story - it makes me want to dig up some old photos and create a fun mixed media project.
