My new favorite thing: stamping and coloring on fabric! Is he not the cutest little cow?!!
After stamping the image, I simply colored with pencils like I normally do on paper. It is a little trickier and you need to hold the fabric pretty taut, but the look is pretty nifty. Had I used the bleached muslin, the colors would probably be brighter, but I really like the muted look of the unbleached.
I attached the upper left corner with a safety pin [you really can't see it very well, dang it], and then stapled the lower left and middle right sides to the natural cardstock mat. I distressed the edges of all cardstocks and frayed the fabric edges as well.

The navy card base was swiped with New Canvas, then I pierced a line of dots across the top sandwiched between two scores from the Scor-Pal [which you can't see either, dang it]. The natural mat, as well as the interior mat, was also pierced. I finished it off with a little bow [which was a total bi-yatch, by the way... the grosgrain ribbon is just too stiff].
What do you think?
