First of all, I turned the failed experiment into a pouch that has a really nice shape. I like it.
What I learned: The ink pad I've been using on fabric for years, that leaves a strong black line, isn't waterproof. Even after ironing.
Why is that important if you aren't washing something you ask??
Sit this little pouch down on a damp counter and the ink runs.
If you don't mind adhesives, which I have a problem with, you could coat it in gel medium to set it.
Well I'm not throwing it away, I'll use it somehow! I don't mind a little blurring.
It started a hunt for permanent ink. I discovered two, VersaCraft and Scribbles. I haven't tried them yet as I just ordered them from Amazon.
I also discovered another ink and way to make your own pads but need to keep that info for an article and classes.
I made a quick thank you gift for Miss Tammy who watches Cole when we're gone for the day
She has a cute little beagle named Chloe.
She likes French Country colors so I used the gold with red hearts for a border. The beagle print had a weird box under it's paw, so I appliqued a coffee cup for fun, since it's a coaster.
When I gave it to her she said Chloe LOVES coffee and licks their face after they drink a cup!
Don't you love the little teapot guy? With loafers on! I wish I'd gotten him but didn't notice him til I looked at the pictures!
That's it for today. I'm sick with my third cold of the winter.
