Printmaking Mixed Media
I've been doing a lot of printmaking lately, using them in fabric designs, and these ATCs and postcards I did a few days ago.
The blue postcard has strips of cotton, ripped to have a rustic look, and gradated. On top, I stamped one of my handcarved designs onto a coffee sleeve, and stitched it on with buttons on the corner.
The ATC was made from Yogi Tea KavaKava tea wrappers, which have a lovely shade of lavender. I collaged them together on cotton with watered down glue, stitched randomly with two shades of purple thread, and stamped over it randomly with several of my hand carved stamps.
