Little Baby Onesie! * TTC25

Gosh … time is running past so quickly!   The ShinHan ARTisans have already got a new challenge for you, TTC25!  It’s a very cool challenge too … color on some fabric & include it on a square card.   We’d love for you to play along with us, stampers & colorers!

Confession:  When I first read the “fabric” element of the challenge, the only thing I could think of was a fabric ‘ribbon’.  So in true Tex form … I needed some think-time.  Thankfully, I entered a store and walked by the fabric department and remembered the fabric challenge.  I decided to look for a pale neutral.  Bam! Found it! Brought just 1/4 yard home, and began to ponder stamps.   (Don’t you love it when things really get on a roll with your ideas?!)

Now where oh where is that can of spray adhesive?   Found that too!   Used my trusty craft iron to smooth out a bit of the folded fabric, and cut a rectangle large enough to accommodate my onesie4baby stamp.  Stepped outside for a quick spray of adhesive onto white cardstock, then carefully laid the pressed fabric atop the tacky cardstock.   Stamped the image and I’m ready to color!  Sounds like a lot … but easy-peasy for sure.  😉

The flowers & leaves were just as easy.   I simply laid the brush tip of my Touch Twin marker RP86 against the fabric 5 times to create the floral “circle”.  For the leaves, I just turned the tip around the opposite direction and laid it against the fabric a couple of times for pairs of leaves.   (Just click the photo for a larger view.)

Square?   Check!

Colored my fabric?  Check!

Kept the design simple so the onesie is the center of attention … just like babies.   😉

Hope you find some inspiration here today!  C’ya!
