Greeting Cards and Postcards - Albatross Stamp
After taking the printmaking workshop, I really wanted to make another stamp. I liked the
4” x 6” format and since I also wanted to make greeting cards and postcards, it was the perfect size.
I found a picture of an albatross with a strong diagonal. This is my pattern and my carved stamp.

I'm not sure what the product is. It is softer than lino but firmer than the soft-kut that I have used before.
I experimented with making greeting cards. Some were printed with Screen Printing Ink and some with Jacquard Textile Color.
|Screen Printing ink on light blue cardstock|
|Screen Printing ink on white cardstock - added watercolour paint after printing|
|Jacquard Textile Color on white cardstock - added watercolour paint before printing|
|Jacquard Textile Color on heavy paper - added watercolour paint after printing - machine stitching|
Also made a couple of postcards.
|Jacquard Textile Color on own handdyed cotton - machine stitching & satin-stitch edges|
|Jacquard Textile Color on silk and organza collage - machine stitching & satin-stitch edges|
Still lots to play with and so many other options to try.
