I recently attended a workshop at Wise Daughters. It was my first experience with Linoblock carving, and my second experience with Christine Pensa. As expected, it was a great afternoon, and I had a great time with the carving & stamping! Though I LOVED screen printing, it is material heavy and I probably won’t get into it until I have my own place. Linoblock printing is a little more low maintenance, and I’m already brainstorming ideas! You should all check out the Wise Daughters workshops! I made a few simple patterns. Once I use my prints in some final artwork, I will post it all up! I actually scheduled this post, because I am currently on vacation! When I’m back stay tuned, I’m looking forward to a very creative summer.
I used my embossing stamps, silver embossing powder, acrylic paint & little crystals I got from Etsy to make this 5×7 card. Ever since I got my Martha Stewart score board, I find that my cards look much more professional :) It’s hard to see the 3D effect of the stamps. I tried to take a picture under light so you can see the full effect. The geometric pattern reminds me of those wooden doors in India.
