PWCO free for all project

My friend Michelle is giving birth on September 9th with her first boy after having 2 gorgeous girls.  I'm lending her some of my stuff that i had kept and her sister in law gave her some hand-me downs too but sometimes it's nice to have something new.  I decided to make her a few onesies, they will all be decorated with material but i made one with this, totally perfect, stamp from the RAM collections.

i stamped the image directly on the onesie using Staz-On ink, it didn't go on as dark as i was hoping but i worked with it.  Now obviously copics and Staz-On are not a good mix so you have to be super careful, the copics will make your Staz-On ink bleed so you have to be careful.  i found the best way to color and not drag black from the outline was to tap with my copic, just as if i was trying to color in dots.  because it's on material, the colors bleed a little so you don't need to go all the way to the edge.
To make the clouds i used a post it that i cut in the shape of a cloud and i just used one of my copics and feathered around the edge.
BTW, blender doesn't really work that well on material.... 

what's in it? 
onesie from JOE bought at Loblaws (i love JOE, the quality is excellent!)
ink: Staz-On, copics (0-Y02-YG06-YR65-BG10-BG15-BG45-R02-R17-R20-RV13-E33)
other: Post-it

hope you give it a try, it's a super quick and easy gift to make for the arrival of a new baby
