Altenew Blog Hop & August Release (Prizes Too!)

Hi friends and welcome to folks finding my blog from Amber Rain Davis‘ blog. I was thrilled to be able to participate in the Altenew blog hop this month. With how crazy this year has been it has been nice to make some fanciful art!

I found a pack of 5 cotton face masks at a local department store and thought they would be perfect to alter!

I stamped the new Beauty Within stamp set from Altenew on the fabric mask with Obsidian pigment ink and then heat set it. I also die cut the flowers and leaves to make masks (you could also stamp extra images out and hand cut them if you don’t have the dies) so I could create an image with several stamps. Then I painted the design with Inktense blocks because they are permanent when dry, even on fabric! I added accents with textile paint (I didn’t want to do this all in fabric paint because I thought it would make the mask hard to breathe in) and I also added some depth with Tulip fabric markers. I heat set the mask with a embossing heat gun when it was dry but you could also use an iron. Tip: If you find it hard to stamp on the mask stretch it over a large acrylic block and clip in in place with binder clips. If the stamped image is missing some parts you can fill them in with a black fabric marker. I recommend washing the mask by hand separately the first time you wash it in case any dye transfers. Mine washed beautifully!
