As soon as I saw the theme for the CI Challenge for February I knew which stamp I would use - my current favourite Alice Palace design CI 372. I also knew I wanted to use it for a textile picture, I think these stamps lend themselves beautifully to use on fabric.
I also used my current favourite fabric to (hopefully) look like a meadow and a pale blue polka dot for the sky. I stamped the design on to the blue fabric and then again onto some tiny red polka dot fabric, cut out the crowns and attached them over the original image. I then cut out a red polka dot heart as the theme is 'For my Friend'.
Excuse the poor picture quality, I'm struggling with the light here!
I have to confess to loving this much more than I thought I would, I love the simplicity of the design and the spring like colours. Rather selfishly, I am NOT going to give this to a friend but keep it for myself! However, I am thinking of making something similar to sell at the craft fair.
There are some great entries to the challenge and a 25% discount on CI products just for entering. I see that there are two other entries using this design (both great), not surprising really as it's so perfect for the theme, pop over and take a look.
