Earlier this month we had visitors Christine, Rick, Kathe and Mike come to Refuge Cove to enjoy some time with us. What a treat!
And, we gals made some time for some creative fun. The remnants of our pond liner (thick, heavy duty rubber) became the medium for creating stamps. Add cedar blocks, scissors and waterproof glue, along with some imagination, and we were good to go.
These are wonderful little stamps. The rubber lays down well and the glue secures all edges. Get them wet with thickened dye, then wash them, and they are good as new.
Last week I made up some print paste with some OLD purple dye and proceeded to fill up some fabric. Yesterday I added some background color.
This stamp is made from a styrofoam meat tray that was just waiting for a design. I used a pen to scratch it out.
Thanks Christine and Kathe for a great time together! I'll be making some more of these stamps soon!
