Fabric Stamping

Okay, I know.  It's not the most beautiful fabric in the world, but I'll make it work.  This is what I get for not using PFD fabric.  The dye just doesn't take as well.  I still like it though, and I already have an idea of what to do with some of it...

As you may can tell, I got out some stamps (and a rubbing plate) and had a little fun with paint on some of it.  While I had the paints out, I had a sudden urge to paint a dress.  Weird, I know. I'm not sure where the inspiration came from, but it did.  So I did.  And here it is.  (Turn your head sideways.  I forgot to rotate it.)
I painted this with acrylics on a piece of my NEW black Kona cotton.  The blue dots are made with a drinking straw dipped in paint.  I think I'll add a face (maybe a yo-yo) and hands (maybe buttons).  This is little - the background fabric is 6 by 8 inches.

That dress is lovely. What fun you are having just makes me want to jump in and have a try.
