Paper to Fabric with left overs

My husband has been cutting things out of perspex to sell and gave me some of the waste pieces to use as templates.
I started by using them on paper.
I used inktense blocks to make rubbings and spread it outside the rubbing with water.  I really loved the distressed look and decided I wanted to do it on fabric.  Inktense is permanent once it has been wet and dried, so perfect on fabric.
This was mt first rubbing.  I still wanted the blurred washed out surround.
With this one I used a brush to blur out the edges, but it was too pale for me so I added a bit more around the edges with my characteristic scribbles.  I also needed to make the central rubbing permanent so I sprayed it with water then dried it quickly with the iron.  I look forward to free motion quilting this one!
