Stamping Monday

Its that time of the week again! Today you might find what you need at home or during a quick trip to the local dollar store. You'll need a couple of pieces of non-slip mats. I think they're meant to put under dishes in the cupboard, kitchen appliances, under your sewing machine and I've seen them as glass coasters for the patio.
Each type seems to have some variation in their design so its worth buying a couple of different styles as they will stamp differently. Cut them into different shapes, circles, squares, triangles and strips.
I've stamped through a stencil I made from freezer paper, that made some interesting texture.
Then I stamped squares in a checkerboard fashion, use a good contrast on coloured fabrics for the image to show up. And don't forget to heat set the paint.

Thanks for this idea, Susan. I especially like the gold print with the green leaves.

I'm enjoying your stamping experiments. It's amazing how many household items can be repurposed.
