Decorating your kids’ wardrobe tutorial!

Hi everyone!

Today it’s my (Monique’s) turn to post on myStampBOX blog!!  

I want to show you a fun technique I recently used: stamping on t-shirts!! 

I think everybody has them: plain t-shirts without a single print on them. When my youngest son complained about one of them it hit me!! I would turn his boring green (or white or any other color) t-shirt into a funny one!! 

Here’s what I did: 

I gathered all the items I needed: the t-shirt, a piece of cardboard, my myStampBOX stamps (Road Trip), a solvent ink (in this case I used StazOn) and an acrylic block:

Before I got started I put the cardboard inside the t-shirt to smoothen the surface on which I was going to stamp to ensure a clear stamped image:

Then I chose my first stamp and stuck it to my acrylic block. Before I stamped on the t-shirt I tried a few times on a piece of paper first and then I stamped on the t-shirt:

I repeated this step with a few other stamps I liked:

And in the end the result looked like this:

Of course once I started decorating one t-shirt I couldn’t stop!!

I got out the next stamping sets “Abundant Blossoms” and “Colorful Companions” and an orange t-shirt:

and then a white t-shirt….  and then my Posca pens…. and this is the result:

and my son????

He’s very happy with his “new” old shirt!!  

This is it for now! Hope you liked it!! And don’t forget: if you give this fun technique a go too, please leave me a comment with a link to your post!!

Please, don’t forget to check back here tomorrow to see what Tina has created for you!!!

Hugs, Monique

    I would love love love to try this, but does the staz-on ink wash off? I suppose I can try it on a piece of scrap cloth and throw in the washer and see what happens, eh? Well, now I need to rush out and buy a lot of plain t-shirts!!

    Thanks everyone, for your lovely comments!! And I’ve washed my son’s shirt in the washing machine a few times now and the stamp is still perfect!!! (although after one season I guess it will get lighter though…. but at this age he doesn’t wear his clothes for more than one season anyway, LOL!!!

  15. Scoobie says:

    Thank you for the tutorial, Monique. I love the idea of stamping on fabric, but have been unsure how to to it – now I know.

    I was a bit surprised to learn that the good old Stazon is suitable for this – thank you for showing!

  16. LOVE THIS!!! Anyone know how we could do white stamping on black T-shirts??? Think that would be cool!
