Stamping Monday

Have you thought about your stamping as a design element? Rather than just placing the stamping randomly across the fabric or paper, do you have a plan or a design that you would like to achieve? To make your stamps work in the very best way for you, try thinking like a quilter! (interesting concept, eh?) Think about blocks, rotation, borders and sashing, then try a variety of stamps with a common theme.

You will have stronger impact and more interesting results. Try different colours on the printing plate or stamp, vary the colours for interest but always consider the colour of the fabric or paper as that can really impact the final result, especially if you are using transparent paints.
