Monday Again?!

This is my design wall today.  It shows some fabric chunks that are going to be part of my next Color Palette Challenge.  And some stuff from last week.  To see some other design walls, click here to go to Judy's blog.

I stamped some little paw prints with distress ink on this, but when I washed it, the ink washed out.  Even though it had been heat set.  So I redid them with different ink.  The reason I washed it was that I thought that the transfer might get softer and less "plasticky" but it didn't.  At least not that I noticed.  One thing I do like about the transfer is that it doesn't melt or stick when I run my hot iron over it.

Tomorrow, March first, I have been invited to be a "guest blogger" on "...And Then We Set It On Fire."  I'm pretty excited about this.  These women have been doing really great stuff with color and fabrics -- subjects near and dear to my heart.  And now I get to be part of it.  I'll be discussing Tsukineko inks.  Long time readers will recognize a couple of my samples, but I have spent most of the week making up new stuff for this.  So stop by and leave a comment for me.

Very cute little dog block and the pig is very cute. I have not tried to dye any fabrics. Your hand dyed look great.

I'll need to check back on your guest blog -- I have some of that ink and have never tried it. I've had it so long it might be dry by now! Thanks for tip to check it out.

yup..........that TAP......don't believe all the hype. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about. I guess for mixed media and when using it on wood, glass or whatever...but I am not that impressed with it on fabric and it certainly does not live up to all it's "claims"
whew...now I feel better LOL

Looking forward to your post tomorrow
