For some reason, I just love metal dies. Sure, I realize there are alternatives out there with electronic machines and digital files. However, there is something about running a die manually through a machine and picking out the different types of paper to layer together, that I just love. Putting together 3D dies, for me, is a mindful activity and I just adore the end result.

Welcome to the Mixed Media Inks Blog Hop! These new pigment inks from Altenew are made to stamp on a variety of surfaces – paper, wood and fabric! These are permanent when heat set. I decided to decorate my mask for today’s project. I simply stamped directly on the fabric. The fabric is quite textured and that gives the flowers a bit of a grungy look. Much better than a plain old white mask and it’s been quite the conversation piece! I think solid stamps are the next thing I’m…
