It always starts with a hand carved stamp, here is my latest.
I have been wanting to carve this butterfly for awhile.
I recently submitted a collection of hand stamped cards for a local donation/auction. Here is what I offered.
These two zinnia sets are available in my Etsy shop
Also included in the donation are two sets of manila hang tags to match the zinnias above and a hand carved stamp mounted on wood of the flowers below. I thank anyone visiting from the auction site for stopping by and getting a better look.
I stamped out these little cuties in the process just for fun on pale blue scalloped panels.
Below are my homemade pigment inks pads I make using Ranger Cut N Dry, foam. I store them in a drawer and don't cover them up.They stay wet for a long time. If they do dry up I always have my refills...
