I received this awesome layered flamingo stamp in a swap recently. So rather than stamp on paper, i thought I would have a go at stamping on some fabric that I had previously dyed. It worked really well. This is the final image. I used two different shades of pink and a brown. The stamp has three layers, I did alter it slightly as it had an other round dot for a cheek under the eye, which I didn't like,
 so I just chopped it out. I rolled out the ink all at the same time, which made the whole layering process pretty speedy.





Inspired by this I used a globe stamp that I had not even taken out of the packaging, and it worked great! TBH this was mostly to use up the ink because I had put so much out.



Then I started to think that it looked kinda cool and steampunky without the stand, so I inked each one carefully.


it all looked a bit timey wimey, so I busted out the dalek stamp that I cut ages ago (and then the bees) made a bit of trim and then spent ages cleaning up the unholy mess that I'd made.

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

WOW! The prints look all AMAZING, edel! I specially LOVE the "Timey Wimey" one with the Daleks!

Any tutorials on that? I've got TONS of stamps, but haven't taken them to fabric yet (well... apart from once for the last TM patch round)!!

Those look fantastic! I especially love the flamingos. How did you make sure the layers lined up correctly? That's always a challenge for me.

lining up perfectly..pffst, they so don't, but they are clear stamps on a clear acrylic block so that really helps. I just need to learn more patience and actually draw some guidelines so that the stamps are on a more regular grid.

and learn to ink some of the properly. I am still struggling to find a soft brayer, which works better with fabric and ink.


Inselaeffchen The technique is the same for this as for using any regular old lino cut. I thought I had done a tute, let me look-Edit Clearly I am delusional. I will do a tute in the next while.

Beautiful...I love how you mix stamps and they seem to fit together giving a very unique fabric.  Do you use fabric inks?  I have tons of stamps and have not even taken some of them out of the packages!

I especially love the daleks...

After seeing MistressT's mix & match cloth napkins the other day, I was thinking I should use some of the awesome prints you gave me to make some, so I can see them around the house daily.
