Wink Stamping sheer fabric...

Another of my older forays...

I wanted to stamp on some of tons of sheer ribbons I posess--many of which are 1.5-2+" wide. But this technique works for fabrics like tulle, chiffon, organdy, etc.

Step 1. Stablize the fabric. Easiest way is to use masking tape on the 'wrong' side of the sheer material. (other options exist)

Step 2. Load your stamp with ink (I prefer StazOn 'cause it's quick) or craft paint (be sure to clean off the paint from your stamp before it sets on the rubber).

Step 3. (optional) color the stamped image with more ink/paint.

Step 4. Remove the tape.

The example I'm sharing is a polyester sheer ribbon & I scanned it on a BG so the design would show up.

The wood--stick & shape--were stamped & holes made with a handgrip circle punch.

Sorry for the poor quality of the attachment's visibility, but...

For those 'Type A' crafters? Stamping sheer ribbon can add panache to your holiday wrapping. And--depending on the ribbon--you can use pigment ink & embossing powder(s).

Got a nice poinsettia or holly leaf stamp? Try stamping them on organdy & cut them out as package trims...
