Crunched paper

This fabric I made using crunched paper as a stamp. When you crunch a sheet of (printer)paper you get an irregular surface. Because of this irregularity the paint is not all over the stamp. The irregularity gives a lovely effect and is great for background fabric. I used different greens and blue paint on a limegreen procion mx dyed piece of fabric. I made this fabric for a swap with my surfacing group and right now the fabric is winging it's way across the pond.

What a simple concept, yet what a complex and terrific effect! Envious of the recipient...

Een heel mooi resultaat Wil. Het lijkt of je met embossingpoeders hebt gewerkt.Of vergis ik me?
