Happy Monday evening!
I have definitely fallen in love with hand printing.
In the past few days I have been carving rubber stamps and I couldn't stop! ^_^
The whole process- from carving to stamping is much easier and more enjoyable than carving linoleum.
Stamped impressions on fabrics look more precise too.
The rubber doesn't crumble or break and therefore allows you to carve in smaller details, it's so soft too. When I carved lino stamps I cut myself a few time cause it was so hard..
Rubber blocks are a bit more expensive but for what you get it's worth it!
Ok now it's time to share some for the results!^_^
Flowers stamped with rubber stamps on kitchen towels
(I made this kitchen towel as a gift for my mum, hope she likes it!^_^):
And as a comparison flowers stamped with lino stamps (this is also for my mum^_^) :
And here I was totally experimenting with new designs.
Carving doll stamps:
Stamps on fabrics. First just plain in black ink on two different backgrounds and then with hand painted colours added in:
That's it! What do you think of my experiments? I would love to hear from you^_^
