Playing with stamps
A very sweet friend sent me some fabulous old hamilton wood type and some copper etched stamps, mostly advertising and dingbats, and I finally got to play with them a bit. I tried regular rubber stamp ink on paper and fabric this morning just to see if the metal faces would take the ink...no problem, it worked fine! So now I'll be using some of them in my future work, although I'm not sure just how yet...it will develop as I go along, I'm sure.
I just love the little cat...she's black and white or red and white...reminds me of my Sumi...
