I'm back today, playing along in another StencilGirl blog hop, this time featuring the designs of Sue Pelletier. I love Sue's whimsical designs and today I'm using her Loose Woman #1 stencil. I decided to experiment with a technique that's been on my 'to do' list for some time...using deColourant, a product created to remove pigment from fabric.
I started with a wonderfully colourful piece of my hand dyed fabric. After laying the stencil over the fabric I sprayed the deColourant over the entire image. Following the directions on the spray bottle, I waited until it had dried completely (I'm not good at this waiting part, but it specifically says to let it air dry so I had no choice!).
Once the deColourant was completely dry, I used a steam iron and ironed the fabric, watching the magic as the colour left, leaving behind Sue's fabulous Loose Woman image!
The freezer paper stencils were ironed onto the fabric and I then used a white Shiva paintstik and my finger to apply the paint.
Great news...StencilGirl has a giveaway!
