PWCO project - stamp on fabric

Good morning to you all!! I can't wait to share with you something fun I made. This fun project is my first time trying using Harriet the Hippo from the PWCO Safari Friends Collection.

I always wanted to try stamping on cloth, so I bought this little Gerber newborn baby shirt to try out. First, I lay a piece of cardstock in between the front and back, so it my coloring wouldn't got through between layers. I stamped the image with Memento Ink, then colored it with CopicMarkers. Since I had so much fun trying it out, after colored the image, I even drew some flowers. Sorry, but just got a little carry away and couldn't stop coloring :o)

I am also using my project for the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenge #77 - Happy or Sweet
Mami Doodles Challenge #7 - Anything Goes
The Stamp Man Challenge # 1 -Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge #62 - Baby/Child
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Cutie Patootie

Here is a closer view on this image coloring

After I finished, I wrapped it like a little piece of candy. I thought this will make a great gift for a little baby!!

Since this is my first try, I will try some more next time using the StazOn ink to see what happened after wash. Thank you for coming by today and see you soon!!

What a lovely gift!!! The colouring is just SO GREAT! I always wanted to stamp on cloth but didn't really research in what ink to use. Good to know that memento and copic will do. Thanks for sharing!
