T Shirt Experiment #1

I went to my LSS yesterday afternoon (Memory Keeper in Hamilton) in search of some new Tim Holtz stuff...maybe some inks...some new stamps, some core-dinations paper...OK so I ordered some stamps and the paper while I was there...and I bought these...Distress Stains

I have never used them before, but have seen a few of Tim Holtz's video tutorials and thought they'd be fun to try, so I picked up five different colours to start (Pumice Stone, Faded Jeans, Fired Brick, Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint).

I also found THIS super cute T shirt die and co-ordinating stamp set from My Favourite Things(how fun is THAT???).

So this morning I started experimenting, cut a bunch of T shirts out of white cardstock and ended up with these three little T shirts:

This one used faded jeans distress stain, which I spritzed with water. The "Rock On" came with the stamp set, I heat embossed that in black.

On the next one I started with spun sugar (it's really really light) and went over top of it with pumice stone. The skull is a stamp from Graphicat and I heat embossed it in glittery pink. I also used my versamarker to draw then heat emboss the collar.

For the last one I started with fired brick, then heat embossed (again in black) the sentiment which is one of my fave stamp sets from SU "carry on."

So I guess the next challenge will be to actually make cards to put these on!!!

Thanks for lookin!!
