Tsukineko Memento Luxe Ink - Stamping on Fabric

Today I wanted to share the results of my stamping on fabric with Tsukineko's new Memento Luxe mixed media ink. 

I started off with a swatch of cotton (from an old pillow case) that I had ironed flat.

I stamped the flowers with Lilac Posies,

a couple flourishes using Rich Cocoa

and the sentiment with Danube Blue.  I was amazed at how well the ink performed.  It didn't run, bleed or blend together (where I stamped over another color) at all on the cotton fabric.   Even the tiny details of the very small print was easily readable.

And here is how I used my stamped fabric...

Now since I know it worked well on a tight weave fabric I got to thinking about the seam binding again.  I wondered how well it would do on such a loose weave material so I gave it a shot.
I used three different very small fonts (about 1/4" tall) to see how they would fair....

As you can see it does look a bit blurry on this very fine script but I'm not sure if that's because of the ink or if it's because of the loose weave or a combination of the two.

This bolder print faired much better.  You can even see the tiny dots in the "L" and "U".

and finally the curlicue font..

Overall this ink is VERY fabric friendly, it doesn't run or bleed like most inks do and as an added benefit I noticed that it dries very quickly as well.
