Cocktail Napkins

Here is another set of cocktail napkins that I have made using Alpha Stamps Fabric collge sheets.

This set was made using the old fabric collage sheets, the ones that have been replaced with non fading fabric. You can see in the second picture how the images faded.

Go HERE to see the original coloration. You will need to scroll down the page till you find "Cinderella and the Birds"

I decided to do these using the old fabric collage sheets so that I could see how much better the new ones are and boy are they fabulous.

If you go HERE it will take you to a set of cocktail napkins (different design) that I have made using the new fabric collage images. The detail in those is absolutely fenominal for something so small and washable.

To make these I died the fabric two colors of lumious ink so they are very very shimmery. The trim is a soft yellow that I stamped in swirls using the darker of the luminous paints. However the shimmer did not transfer I think the stamp was to detailed (swirls to thin) to get enough shimmery paint on. Once everything was put together I heat set the images and then sewed them on.

These are very beautiful, Caro --even if you used the older AlphaS. fabric images that do not resist fading as well. I still like them very much! So glad to see you are putting your class with me to such good use! I love the dyed blue shimmery fabric for the napkins -goes great with the Alpha Stamps bird images.
