Design wall

Busy day and no time to work on my books!!
 
 
I did make two Swap cards
The first was an ATC with the theme Friendship:


 
The is actually a photo of a tile with a claudaugh carved into it!!  I printed it on white card stock, reduced the image 25 percent and created a blank center printed on 30# vellum and stamped the sentiment!
 
This card was for a water themed image swap, I wanted something a little different:
 
 
But what really kept me busy was this
 
A new collage wall at Letterpress Things:
 
This is the entrance way, isn't it inviting? After our customers climb 8 flights of stairs I want them to have something pretty to look at just before they pass out!
 
The opposite wall:
 

Aren't these type cabinets beautiful!!  We have dozens all sizes and shapes and all my wood stamps want me to bring on home!  Only one problem I don't have room!!!  Whaaaaaa!!!!

The sun was streaming in on these plates, Unfortunately I can't marry these beautiful images into my rubber stamp art, they require a lot of pressure and a ink that has a very viscose composition!



I might however be able to use this sweetie:  A Vandercook proof press:  I'm told it would give me a very superior image!  More on that experiment later!!

 
 
I'm off to a big rubber stamp tag sale!
I hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
