I am thrilled to be involved with a blog hop this week for Tiffany Windsor's Creative Scarves book. I love making scarves so when I was asked if I would be willing to review Tiffany Windsor's newest book, I immediately said yes. I generally crochet scarves, but was intrigued to see other ways to create scarves.
This 128 page book is packed with wonderful images and detailed directions for completing each scarf. The photos are amazing and the instructions are detailed, yet easy to follow.
The book is broken into 5 sections - Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Couture - so you can easily search for a scarf based on any requirements you might have. And I was amazed at the variety of projects that used felting, embroidery, stamping, doodling, beading, crochet, painting and so much more. Each time I perused this book, I found something new I wanted to try.
I am an avid stamper - I adore my stamps and inks. When I saw the variety of projects using stamps, I knew I wanted to give it a try. I will say that larger, open stamps are better for this project. I found that detailed stamps did not work as well for me (but that's not to say I won't try them again!).
ColorBox Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler - Deep Woods
Izink Ink - Geranium
I found some pretty silk-type fabric with a slight pattern.
Since it was stark white, I soaked it in a mixture of Izink and water overnight.
I simply filled a contained with water and added 6-7 drops of Geranium Izink Ink
Once dry, this lovely pink tone was the result.
I hung it up to dry overnight.
Using Deep Woods Crafter's Ink, I stamped the images about the scarf.
Just be sure to heat set each stamped image before stamping the next image.
Once I stamped around the scarf, I sewed the edges to finish.
I probably should have done that first - but I was just too anxious to start stamping that I didn't think of sewing the edges till I was done!
Deep Wood Crafter's Ink is a very dark green and looks really pretty against the pink background.
Please leave me a comment, I'd love to know what you think!
