Wednesday Stamper - Colorful

For Wednesday Stamper's Colorful theme. I was experimenting with Trish Bee's Gold Leaf resist technique, but was doing it from memory and didn't realize I was supposed to use watercolors. Ooops! I used acrylics but still like the look of it. Elephant stamp is one of my faves from The Stampsmith's Passage to India plate. The whole piece is stitched on to a piece of black velvet. Very hard to see from the scan.

I'm thinking it would make a really cool purse. I don't know how I'd protect the paper though....maybe just scan the whole thing and then print it on fabric? Iron on transfer?

  4. Artfully done. Great graphic appeal. You do amazing work with color. I would break into a sweat if I had to do something with orange tones.
    I think this would make a great wall hanging, too. For a purse, maybe print it onto canvas paper. Pretty durable stuff.

  9. If you can remove your paper piece from the velvet fabric backing, then maybe you could sandwich the paper piece between Aleene's Paper Napkin Applique glue. It will protect 1 layer of a paper napkin, but I don't know if it will protect a thick piece of paper/cardstock. Or there's always those scrapbooking purses that have a plastic window. :D
