Well it showed through in a really nice way. Well, I think it's nice. Then it turns out you CAN stamp on fabric that has been painted with gesso. And the same magical coloring properties exist. AND when you cut out a flower that you stamped and colored on gesso painted fabric guess what? Not fraying! And this fabric does fray a lot. But not with the gesso on top. :)
Here is a close up of the cut flower. Also you can see here I put some glitter in the flower centers.
All the stamps are by Stampin' Up!. I used Tombow markers, liquitex gesso, random fabric from a thrif shop and stazon ink. I think the paper is all SU too, maybe the kraft is TAC, I have both and got the packages mixed up.
Oh and a note on the stitching, I stitched around three times, once with a straight stitch, which you can barely see, then with a wide zig zag, then with a more narrow zig zag. I like how random and scrappy it looks.
