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!

Click the pic to see all the new goodies!

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!

  1. Just Beautiful Lindsay! I just got some like this and was going to use my Inktense pencils on them and was wondering about design. The Altnew stamps and dies are a great idea! Have a wonderful of summer! Anne ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿต๏ธ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’œ


  2. Gorgeous mask Lindsay. I have inktense and several AlteNew stamps/dies and didn’t thinks of doing this. Will definitely get on it after seeing your beautiful mask. Thanks.


  3. I absolutely love your mask! It is gorgeous and so different. Iโ€™m going to try it with muslin fabric. You are always an inspiration.


  4. What a fabulous idea to use inktense blocks to color! I’ve been wanting to do this, but thought the fabric paint would be an issue as well. I never thought of using inktense! Brilliant!
    Will you have this as a tutorial on your YouTube channel as well?
    Thank you so much!

  5. What a great collaboration…Altenew and YOU! โ™ฅ Love your mask and fresh new twist to using stamps! (Love your New-Do…your daughter did great!) ๐Ÿ˜€


  6. I have been thinking of personalizing my masks other than using florals and prints. This is beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration.


    1. I die cut the flowers and leaves to use as masks so I could stamp overlapping elements and not have lines going through the images I wanted in front.


  7. Gorgeous! I love Altenew stamps – they are the place to go for floral stamps and dies. You did them proud, Lindsay!


  8. What a great idea. Very personalized. Looks great. Im sure you get a lot of compliments when out and about. Or frame it for a memento of the trying times, lets it be known…….your creativity was still in tact. Love It!. Thanks for sharing…..A whole lot of hopping going on, Bye!


  9. Beautiful mask! I saw it and wondered how you did it! Can’t wait to try your technique! On a mask of course, with Altenew stamps, of course!


  10. You always get us thinking ‘outside the box’ and showing us a different use instead of the ‘traditional’ use of items. As always, so very creative. Super cute and functional.


  11. Fab idea, I know we all have so many stamps that can be used in this way. Thank you for sharing the inks and paints that work on the cotton fabric.


  12. What? I would have never thought about designing a unique face mask! So gorgeous, and completely a one of a kind design and product. Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous idea with us!


  13. Wow! I saw your first photo and immediately thought NO WAY! What an amazing idea! Love it so much! Might have to try this out! Wear masks and stay safe!


  14. I love that beautiful mask! I have a few white cotton masks and it never occurred to me to decorate them. Think I’ll give this a try. The Beauty Within set is my favorite from this fantastic release.


  15. Nice design. Not really sure how much this changes the integrity of the mask. Hopefully the products aren’t toxic.


  16. I would not have ever thought to do this, but I love how it turned out! Your painting is gorgeous, as always, and it brings such happiness and color to our new normal.


  17. oh Gosh Lindsay, I follow you channel all the time and this creativity just takes the cake!!! I love how you thought inktense for easier breathing…it turned out stunning!! I am so impressed. I wish I had the inktense myself as I couldn’t use fabric paint as breathing issues. Terrific idea!!! I love it.


  18. Love your mask! What a clever idea! And your coloring… Oh my, your colorinng… it’s breathtakingly beautiful!


  19. Wow, what an awesome mask design! So creative and colorful. I would wear that anywhere! Thanks for sharing a great idea.


  20. I love this Lindsay! I didnโ€™t even think about using the Inktense Blocks with fabric. Iโ€™ve been trying to decide how to perk up some of these masks and this is a perfect idea. Thank you.
