I love it when I can do a familiar image in a fun and creative way. For this project I used seven of the new Siser EasyWeed iron on vinyl colors, along with a couple of their classic colors to create this dinosaur shirt for a co-worker. This project was really fun since I was able to be creative. She had sent me a photo of a dinosaur image surrounded by a wreath of flowers and asked me it if was something I could create.

Here are the colors from Siser that I used. First I placed the Bubblegum pink circle to allow me center the design placement of the shirt. Next I placed the rings for the wreath in the Coffee color. Then I placed the leaves in the Apple Green. I wanted to make sure the Black dinosaur image was layered on next so that I could add the flowers and have some of them overlapping into the circle. For the roses, I place Burgundy behind them to pop through the openings between the petals which were cut from the same Bubblegum pink as the center circle. I used Lemon, Pale Blue, Royal Purple and Wisteria for some of the smaller flowers.
I love the way the shirt turned out!
I also did a dinosaur shirt for her son out of the Fluorescent Green StripFlock vinyl. I am in love with the soft texture of the StripFlock!
Here is a close up of the dinosaur so you can see the texture. If you have not tried this product I highly recommend it.
