Mushroom Stamp, TAST 42, Blue Book

 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.

  1. Your mushroom stamp turned out really well. I have yet to try making one of my own. Your stitched piece looks great! Hopefully we'll get to see the whole piece? I have yet to do this week's stitch but will make time this weekend in between helping to put on the winter tires and going out into the hills for firewood.
