If, as they say, facing a challenge makes you grow, I must be about 2 inches taller. The challenge: purple random dye-effects. I don't like purple, can't stand tie-dye (never even liked The Doors, go figure) but this piece of cloth was lying around and I needed to test a new block and some ink. I think the cloth sort of works, but I couldn't find a teacup that would.
Ah, that's better... Green ticking over-printed with a jasmine leaf block.
The new ink, for the record, is silk-screen ink. It's thicker and stickier than fabric paint, and doesn't seem to be eating the blocks just yet.
