Is Your Baby Girl a Little Angel???

This month Creatalicious Challenges asked us to create a little something and this week Anya Ink have asked us to make something other than a card! I was starting to wonder what to come up with for these challenges when I received an email newsletter from Christine Wooden from All That Scraps.In the newsletter there was a wonderful tutorial by Diane Zechman for using Copics on baby onesies - HOW CUTE!!!! Diane has the tutorial on her blog HERE if you want to check it out!

Well as you can see I HAD to try this out - what an adorable gift you could make - with a matching card, box - the list is endless! Obviously I have used a baby's t-shirt instead of a onesie - but the concept is the same. It was really quick and easy to do - once I had the shirt washed and dried! The only hard part was not being able to blend my copics as easily as on CS.

I have painted on fabric before and was tempted to paint over the image with textile medium - but I stuck to the tutorial for this one. My next job is to test how water safe this is after washing - stay tuned - I'll let you know how it goes.

Your last 2 posts are just beautiful Debbie. Can I put my order in if my upcoming grandchild is a little girl?! This t-shirt is just toooo cute!

Merry said...

Wow, you have done such a wonderful job at colouring in on material. Cute image. Can't wait to see the wash test.

Sue said...

What a beautiful job you did coloring that adorable image on the cloth. You have a knack for making things look easy. Years ago I had these paints called liquid embroidery and we did all kinds of baby items with iron on patterns. Your little t-shirt brought back nice memories.
