Favourite things

Neglected my blog for quite awhile, but now I’m back with freshly made stamps!

My first set of round stamps ๐Ÿ™‚
Inspired by postmark stamp, with designs that include a few of my favourite objects!
Alpaca, flowers, tea cup with macaroons… the list goes on.

I love how small things can be so inspiring and whenever I run of of ideas I know I can just incorporate them into my designs.

Looking at the mess makes me feel very accomplished!

Placed them by the window for some natural light! ๐Ÿ™‚
I think they look so cute side by side!

Printed and refined for mounting!
Hopefully I get to sell them at fleas or online and find new homes for them ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh yes, talking about online, I’m planning to open an etsy shop, though everything’s not confirmed yet, but i’m still planning and very excited toย execute my ideas! Will definitely update on blog/facebookย for more info!

Thanks for reading!

Vintage.

I experimented with vintage texture using my favourite postage stamps
and magenta+lagoon blue ink pads yesterday!

The “right” way to do it is to use an art sponge but I made my own tool!
I attached a piece of grey felt to the wood I use for mounting.

TADA!
I’m pretty satisfied with the texture and the uneven gradient ๐Ÿ™‚
Should try with more colours and turn these into postcards!

I like the blank spaces but I’m not sure if the composition is just nice or if I need to improvise a little more.
Anyway I’ll try out a few more times and see how this can work out!
