|I don't have a ginormous fabric stretcher thing, so I smoothed the fabric out on my dining room table.|
Then on to stamping. I used a foam applicator to tamp the floral stamp with fabric paint. This produced quite a lot of variation, and you can see the lines of the stamp around some of the flowers, in the close-up, but in a mass they are not noticeable. It takes a certain technique to press hard enough and still avoid those lines - still learning :-).
In between the flowers I dabbed a red dot, using a paintbrush. Simples :-).
'Course, I've accomplished.....about a 36" x 28" wide space so far, out of 2.5 yards of 60" wide fabric. It certainly takes time, but I am very happy with the result so far.
|You can see my mess-ups in the bottom right, where a detail in the tabletop caused a stamping flub. That part will have to be avoided when doing the cuttng layout.|
