I got a chance to print a few samples from the stamps I carved and showed you last week.
Here’s one of the ogee stamps repeated. It’s black ink on white paper. I didn’t realize how much fun repeating patterns can be when you get started.
Here’s a black on white print of the birch stamp.
And here I was playing around with collage possibilities. I didn’t end up using this one but I still could as I haven’t used these prints/papers yet. I hope you’re having a great weekend!
Repeating patterns are fun! The birch looks great in black and white – actually the white almost looks silver.
Thanks Lyn, probably just the bad photography to get silver instead of white 🙂
Love the birch in black and white.l
Great repeats! Did you have problems with lining them up at all? I remember watching block printers at work in India creating huge pieces of cloth in three or four colours with no registration marks at all – done purely by eye.
Thanks Kim! I didn’t use any registration marks, just lined them up by eye. They aren’t perfect, but that’s OK. Yes, those huge pieces of cloth in India are definitely amazing.
Love your repeating pattern, would look great as wallpaper on a feature wall….
Thanks Teri, it reminds me of wallpaper too.
