ColorBox Crafter's and Erasable Fabric Ink

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a colorful home decor piece. I absolutely love embroidered art. Much of the designs that catch my eye are way beyond my limited skill set, but I didn’t let that stop me. I used ColorBox Crafter’s® Ink and ColorBox® Erasable Fabric Ink with stamps to add more personality to a store-bought embroidered napkin. Filling up the white space in my piece with colorful stamping was a real time-saver and great alternative to stitching.

ColorBox Crafter's and Erasable Ink

Step One: Use ColorBox® Erasable Fabric Ink to stamp a sentiment onto a piece of fabric. Note: I started with an embroidered napkin, but a piece of original embroidered fabric would also work here. I chose a simple script word without a lot of detail that I could easily stitch over.

Step Two: Stitch over the stamped sentiment with embroidery floss. Note: My stitching covered the ink completely. To erase any visible ink, wet a cotton swab or cloth with water and wipe away the image.

Step Three: Use ColorBox Crafter’s® Ink with stamps to add colorful designs to the fabric. Note: I used Cat’s Eye Inkpads for this step because I was working with small stamps. All the colors I used here are also available in full-size inkpads.

Step Four: Insert the fabric into an embroidery hoop. Cut away excess fabric. Optional: Embellish the embroidery hoop with flowers.

I’m so happy with how this semi-handmade project turned out! Try using Smooch® Accent Ink to paint a fun design onto the embroidery hoop. Mother’s Day is fast approaching. A similar piece with a monogram or a stitched “Mom” would make a wonderful gift!

Thanks for stopping by today!
