A while ago I saw some cute T-shirts appearing around FB with iron-on images using digi stamps. I had it in mind to make something for my great niece when she was born last December but never got around to it! Recently I saw Trudie's fabulous new tutorial on how to do this with wonderful hints and tips HERE and I was all inspired again to give it a go. I bought a little white tee and purple short set to play with from K-Mart.
I used Mo Manning's gorgeous new ballerina image Odette to play with - I figured I could get away without too many strong colours on my first attempt at this technique! I found a quote I liked to add as the sentiment and used WordArt to add it to the image before printing off - and like Trudie says - make sure you print off your words backwards so they are the right way round once you've ironed on your image!!!
And here she is close up - there are a couple of spots where the colour bled past the lines but that just adds to the hand coloured effect - well that's what I'm telling myself anyhow - LOL. Also I found the blending isn't as smooth as when you use blending paper - but that just adds to the challenge.
I painted on some Jo Sonja Opal Dust for some glitter - this works well on fabric but I did have to grab the hair-dryer out so my copic ink didn't bleed as it was quite wet going on - and make sure you have something sandwiched between the front and back of your tee to stop any unwanted marks going through.
The one thing I hope is that my iron on media has the same qualities as the one Trudie used as there are several different ones on the market - in particular I hope it stands up to washing - I guess time will tell...
