This is the drawing for a handmade stamp idea. I copied it onto lino soft cut and then carved out the dark areas with a sharp knife. I did this a while ago, but I kept forgetting to photograph the actual carving below.
And this is the print, I used a ink pad for this and I didn't print it very well, my desk was too cluttered.
Take a stitch Tuesday - the stitch this week is Italian border stitch.
I've used the stitch as an isolated stitch rather than a border. It is the red stitches on this WIP piece that I have shown before.
and the purple stitches on the piece below, two stitches together.
I've finished the blue book, I'll show the inside pages at a later date.
