I so enjoy embellishing my art pieces using textured objects in design of the textile surface. I decided I would like to try a project exclusively using rubbing plates, rubber and cling stamps and see how it all turns out. I envision a mostly monochromatic piece of a flying creature. I'm going to do 3 mini quilts but am beginning with a dragonfly. So here we go. I'm working on a base of a soft light value green fabric. I've quartiles this piece from my stash so I can do 3 pieces the same size.
I place the rubbing plate( rough side up) on my work surface and tape it at 2 corners to avoid movement.
The fabric goes on top right side up, is centered over the rubbing plate, and taped at corners to minimize movement.
