Sometimes you just have to play with your paints, stamps and fabric! So that's what I did! I showed the results of using the iron to transfer rubbings in my last post. This time I decided to do the old fashioned way of stamping and rubbings!
Above picture is a stamp I carved several years ago along with a negative of the same stamp I made using the foam (green stamp - you heat it and stamp with your stamp!).
Another stamp I made...
I stamped two of these pieces, which are Pat Campbell's fossil fern yellow, with the stamp above.
Above is a stamp I carved this past winter with our little fiber group in Florida.
I ended up using the stamp above as well as using the smaller tree stamp in previous pics.
The stamp above is actually sticky foam I cut and put on a piece of cardboard. It's been getting a lot of use and I'm not sure how much longer it will last but so far so good!
The stamps above are positive and negative stamps. Again, I carved the bottom stamp and then did an imprint on to heated foam to create a negative stamp.
I used a canvas fabric for this stamping. All the rest of the pieces are muslin (bleached) or JoAnn's white Egyptian fabric.
This is a roller type stamp...not even sure where I got it from! But it worked out pretty good.
This is a piece of fabric that was screen printed using deconstructed screen printing technique...I think this was about the fourth or fifth pass. Nothing exciting....
But after stamping using Neocolor 1 pastels, I am really happy with this piece. I actually had two of these pieces I stamped. Again, I used Neocolor 1 and an oil pastel crayon.
I did several other pieces that I didn't take photo's of...but my next post will show some of those as well as some from this post that I painted over with dye! What fun! I was inspired by Hilary B., who does wonderful work and shares so much! I love her embroidery stitching she does with floral designs. Just fantastic work. Check her out!!
