This past month’s The Printed Fabric Bee challenge topic was Found Object Marks. Leslie Jenison the Queen Bee, chose this topic, requesting neutrals with a pop of color on an 8 x 18 piece of fabric. Before I show you the collection that will be given away, here is my piece and my process.
I started with this piece I had dyed with black fiber reactive dye mixed with enough water to make a lovely gray.
Since this was a challenge with found objects, I wanted to use a couple of my potato mashers found at thrift shops. I decided to first stamp the piece with deColourant. I love how this product takes away the color. I’m using my homemade gelatin plate as a stamp pad.
After stamping over the entire piece, I let it dry. When it was dry it was hard to see where I had stamped. However, as soon as I added the heat of the iron, the stamping appeared.
And here is the finished piece again.
And a closeup.
Here is my 6 x 6 piece for the giveaway.
