Stamping With Foam Stickers

How to stamp paper and fabric with those cheap foam stickers via lilblueboo.com

I use them as stamps because let’s face it…..you can only do so much with 400 horse stickers:

I stack the stickers 3 high….that’s just enough height to keep the ink on the stamp and not on the stamping block.  I use Legos for the stamping block because they are so customizable in shape and can be easily cleaned and thrown back in the Lego pile:

I use a paint roller or brayer to apply regular fabric paint or screen printing ink to the stickers. I used Setacolor fabric paint (from Dharma Trading) here:
