Spray resist on fabric

Hi crafters. This card was inspired by watching the Tim Holtz demo on micro glaze. I thought I would see if it worked on fabric. I started with an ugly sample piece of upholstery fabric. On the wrong side of it I splashed on various coloured spray stains by shaking the nozzles over the fabric. The colour wicks out into the dry fabric. Then I stamped in archival jet black ink using Prima Messy writing, Offset dots and Carabelle Collage des Ronds. I then placed the Creative Expressions Abstract Triangles stencil on top and applied Distress Microglaze with a sponge blending tool. I also tried to rub this in a bit with my finger. I then sprayed the fabric with charcoal, green and blue sprays. It became a bit dark and I couldn’t see the pattern well so I sprayed it with water and pressed some clean scrap paper over it. The wetting and lifting of the scrap paper revealed lighter areas where the glaze had been applied. When the fabric was dry I adhered it to the card base and stitched around the edge. The Stamplorations sentiment was black heat embossed onto green acetate. I fussy cut this except for the left edge, and then stitched the left edge to the card base. (The sentiment is otherwise loose and can be lifted on the right).

Original fabric underneath. Reverse side was used.

The weave of the fabric provides extra texture and the result is more interesting than the original pattern of the fabric. It was fun to try it on fabric and I will definitely use microglaze more after watching the demo.

Happy crafting,
