Anyhoo... Here's a t-shirt I made for my wee man from a simple aztec print stamp that I carved. I used a Versa Colour Ink to stamp with and then set it with an iron. I will wash it in a cool wash first to see how it comes out. Versa ink do make a fabric ink pad so look out for that if you want first time success. I read somewhere though that the usual versa colour lasts just as well with an iron set.
I love it and so does my eldest son, he would like one too as does hubby... Do they really or are they just being nice ;)
Here it is...
|For George my youngest I measured 11cm down from each shoulder and ran the ruler in a straight line. I then printed just below the line, joining up the repeat prints along the way.|
|I heat set the ink with an iron on hot steam through a tea towel.|
|Ta Na! What do you think, Aztec surfer! well nearly ;)|
|Here it is on show at the fair today along side the other repeat print stamps that I had for sale, again no sale! Maybe I should let it go and go with all the stamps that do sell. Oh go on, give it a go and link your blog to me ;)|
