Actually, I should say that I took a few days. Emily whipped hers out after school today. I wish I had that girl's gumption and fearlessness!
My vision was much greater in my head, but I ended up keeping it simple in the end. I used an old Fabrico inkpad to stamp the large flower from Friends 'Til the End in the center of my shirt and then added two smaller blossoms from Garden of Life on each side. Because my inkpad was old and bit faint, I traced over the flower outlines with a black fabric marker. Then I colored them in with other fabric markers. Pretty simple! It just took me some time because of my perfectionism. lol
I accidentally got a black smudge on the shirt from the corner of my acrylic block. Nooooo! That set me back a day trying to figure out what to do. My daughter got the brilliant idea to add a bee next to the flower, and this cute image from Honey Bees worked perfectly. Shirt saved! :)
I actually like Emily's shirt much better than mine! She took some old foam alphabet stamps that I've had for years and stamped the sentiment "Embrace imperfection" using my Fabrico inkpad. She then went over each letter with a black fabric marker. She intentionally made mistakes. Love this girl!
She stamped an owl using stamps from Wise Owl and Wise Owl Bellies, coloring it with fabric markers. It turned out pretty cute! Did I mention I love this girl? She teaches me so much. :)
