Make It Colourful Challenge #4 - Colouring on something OTHER than white cardstock!

This week for our challenge at Make it Colourful we're challenging you to color on something OTHER than white cardstock! For my project, I wanted to make a t-shirt for my girls but wasn't quite sure how to do it with digi stamps. I've stamped with ink & rubber on fabric and colored but this was different. Then my fabulous teamies came to the rescue and suggested iron on transfer sheets. So I picked up some HP Iron-On Transfer for Color Fabric that I could run thru my printer. I have LOVED Rocker Roxette since I first saw her and have had her for ages and this is the first time I've colored her!

Here you can see her close up. I absolutely LOVE how she turned out! It's different coloring on the iron on portion then fabric. It's kinda smooth but kinda rough and uneven. I heat set it again after I finished coloring. I'm worried about how it will wash so I'm going to let my daughter wear it first because she is very excited about her new shirt. In fact, I still need to color a 2nd one for my other daughter...cuz you know what you make for one, you need to make for the other too. *giggle* The 2nd one will be green though as those are their favorite colors. :)

I hope you liked my project and you will be inspired to try to color on things other than white cardstock, whether it be kraft, fabric, tissue paper, vellum, -- the Colour Addicts have blown me away with their creativity once again! Be sure to stop by the Make It Colourful Blog & see all the lovely projects today.
