ART PROMPT - #6 - Week 2 – Use rubber stamps

I was away most of the week but did manage to get the printing done today.

I experimented with acrylics first and did not like the results. I then remembered that a friend had given me some Textile Screen Printing Inks so gave that a try. Much better.

I cut out paper patterns of my clematis flowers and pinned them on my background so I would have an idea where to place the leaves.

Flower placement
 And this is what it looks like now. I decided to darken the paint going downwards, not sure it that was a good idea. I have to let it dry overnight and heat set it before doing the stitching.


See you next week,

Wow! I am impressed that you did this with a hand carved stamp, you have really used it to its best advantage. What is the overall size of the work? The colors glow on the black background.
