And one more - Velvet Girls















This is a transfer image piece on fabric atc. I used bottle green velvet and a linen over paper for the linen effect transfer. plus acrylic white and green ink. Added beads and abalone leaf plus brad

It was so nice to play with all the little bits and bobs today a little of everything and having posted earlier that makes it the most i have done in ages craft wise

To get the faded girls image this is what i did

Took a piece of linen type fabric. Covered with good covering of white acrylic paint. Placed image down into the wet paint. Used a brayer to roll over and press the image into the paint. The image transfers to both the card and the fabric. This print is on the card. The fabric one i have kept for another project. Both are faded but i love the look.

What a great idea - didn't know you could do it as simply as that - thought you had to buy transfer gels and stuff

Looks lovely, June. Was your image an inkjet print or from a book?
