hand stamped fabric cuff, quilted and beaded

Do you ever stamp on fabric?  I do, occasionally, using what used
to be Fabrico Inks--now you'll find them as VersaCraft. (VersaCraft)

hand stamped, quilted, beaded cuff
 The colors are lovely, and they stay true, even after many washings--
it just takes a little ironing to heat set the inks.

These stamps are from the Nature Medallions set.

The fabric was monoprinted with the VersaCraft Inks before stamping--you
can see some of the fabric pieces HERE.

Want to learn more about fabric stamping?  Check out this tutorial by Karen
McAlpine, HERE. Come link your own fabric stamping challenge, with the
chance to win $25 of Blockheads stamps, at the Blockheads Paper Arts blog
by July 21st.

:) Happy Monday, everyone!

Stamping onto fabric has to be my favourite but never had the courage to take it to this step that you have.
