I've had this idea in my head for a long time and I'm not ashamed to say that it was inspired by Martha Stewart. I just happend to find a spare blank tea towel in my stash. Already I can think of a neater way to do it, but I like the way it turned out. 


its a little blurry here, I don't think it 's the photo- that's probably real life too. I think next time I'll carve a few potatoes long wise w/ the branch shape and stamp it, instead of using a brush. 

I'd been waiting for an apple that was a bit past it's prime...maybe I won't next time since it wasn't as firm as I wanted it to be and started to lose it's shape towards the end...

Hey, that looks really cool!  If the apple wasn't firm enough, you could use a potato instead.  I've seen lots of stuff about potato stamping online.  Either way, it's very pretty!

what did you use for the 'ink'? just standard fabric paint?

I wanted to an apple specifically for the star pattern you get if you slice it width-wise; next time I do it I'll buy the lest ripe apple I can.

I used acrylic paint w/ textile medium.
