Fabric Stamping Technique Challenge- Part Two

Hi Dreamers,
The Blockheads Technique Challenge is still open and will end on the 21st.  I have more fabric stamping to share with you today.  I not only stamped on the fabric but I pieced the images with fabric.  Just like paper piecing , but with fabric.  I used two Penny Black stamps.   Here is the first card.

Material List:
Stamp: Tete-a-Tete Penny Black  and Tres Chic Penny Black  from Blockheads Paper Arts
Black Versa Color Ink
Bleached and Unbleached  Muslin 100% cotton fabric
Print Calico Fabric
Lavender CS

Stamp the image on the bleached muslin and again on two different print fabrics.  Cut out the clothing from the print fabric.  Color the skin, animals, and table with markers.  Glue the cut out clothing  to the base stamped fabric piece.  And, that's it!! Wasn't that easy??!!  I mounted the fabric on a stiff piece of white CS and then glued that to the lavender card base.

I continued the fabric theme by making a fabric rosette and using some fabric strips as embellishments.  

Card Two is made in the same way with the same materials.  This stamp is called Tres Chic and is stamped on unbleached muslin.  

I added some paper flowers for embellishments.

Some Other Fun Challenges for my Pieced Fabric cards:
Penny Black at All sorts: summer blooms--my second card
the Secret Crafter Saturday: food and drink --the second card
Love to Create;Three of something---three different fabrics
Paper take weekly: all things girly
Simon Says stamp and Show: no rules
