The Diva's weekly challenge (here) was to go back to basics: 3.5 x 3.5 white tile, black and white, string, and pencil shading. It is probably not that different than I usually do, but I did try to use some tangles I had not used in a while.
New Hand Carved Stamps
In December I carved a bunch of stamps to play along with Julie Fei Fan Balzer and a bunch of other people for the #CarveDecember challenge (here). I did not carve one stamp a day (just did not have the time), but did carve as many as I had time for. It even made me get on Instragram to share, encourage, and get encouragement :). I had a lot of fun.
Here are all of them (bottom) and the prints on fabric above. I will show a few at a time in the next few posts.
|This is a very simple flower, sketched on paper in about 10 seconds. It took a bit longer to carve :)|
|This one I carved on my wedding anniversary, so I had to go with the LOVE theme :)|
|This is a very simple branch, which you can print several ways to make crazy looking trees :)|
