Fun With Fibers


A technique tip from Sunshine... you simply ink up a rubber stamp image (using a Brillance or a juicy pigment inkpad).... pull fibers (Angelina fibers... scroll down page a bit to see the individual packs... "hot fix" ones... http://www.sewthankful.com/AngelinaFibers.html) apart and place about 3 or 4 thin layers of them on TOP of the inked image... cover with a small piece of parchment baking paper... and firmly press with an iron (using WARM setting)... for just a few seconds... keep the iron moving so the fibers do not burn to the paper... then you pull the paper off the stamp... and the image has been transferred onto the "fused" fibers... now I want to try this with ALL my rubber stamps (and I have HUNDREDS of them)... sigh... the first one (using a lady image bought at Stampo's), is my absolute FAVORITE one... so far... lol...
