For this project, I found a template of an anchor online. I made it to the size that I was happy with, printed it out and using scissors and an Exacto knife cut it out. Then I taped it to a cardboard and cut it out again. I also taped a tiny piece of cardboard behind my stamp for easy stamping! I took a brush and applied white fabric paint and started to stamp away! At first I tried fixing my anchors with a paintbrush and going over them, but then I quickly realized I love the stamped effect and the imperfectness of the results.
This project didn't take long at all... The longest part was to cut out the anchor! I stamped the front side of my pants and let them dry overnight. If you decide to sail away with stamping, just read the drying instructions on your bottle! ;) I stamped about 10-12 anchors on each leg front and back. You can do as many or as little as you like. Have fun with the sizing of the anchor as well! :)
What do you think of my pants? Are they appropriate for our vacation? I think yes! ;)
I can't wait to get my hands on on more stamping! I think maybe a shirt next? I want polka dots! Ahh, the possibilities are ENDLESS!!! You can make your own stamps of any size, shape, object you like! I do have another project in mind, so don't be surprised to see more of stamping around here. O and I are kind of in love with it! ;) Also, head over here to check out O's Book Stamping Fun. :)
Thank you so much for reading, happy Monday and happy stamping if you decide to do it!
