Recently I spent an evening printing, and this is what I accomplished – red bobbin graphic printed on 48 quilt cards from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as on several other cards. I was looking for a way to personalize purchased stationary, and I think I’ve found it. I’ve been saving this post until I get the cards mailed to my friends so I don’t ruin the surprise. Hope they like them. I think they turned out really well. The image is subtle on some of the quilt designs and very obvious on others. I thought it was important to do it in red (for their business Red Red Bobbin.)
I’m anxious to choose other “personal” motifs to carve and print. Again – going to be easier with 2 fully functional hands. Thankfully the planning is good fun. The same night I printed a little heart carving that I made with left over carving material. The circles in the heart are made by inserting the point of an exacto knife on an angle, and turning the material in a circle. It works well for little itty bitty circles. I can only imagine what they will look like with a little practice!
I printed this card just to see how fabulous the colors would look together. I was right.
And just in case you wanted to see them again, here’s the group of cards together one more time.
These are really beautiful!
