Two Colour Printing!

Test batch of two colour stamp prints!
After making the two colour printed skeleton bag, I wanted to try more! So I carved up some second stamps to coordinate with some of my older designs...

They came out really rough and worn and splotchy, which I love. I printed the images with white ink, heat set them then printed over with black ink. I didn't have registration marks, so they are all a little off. I think it reminds me of graffiti. The ones on cotton worked much better than the blended fabrics. But then, doesn't everything?

I took this little batch of tests and made up a little batch of triangular pouches.

Its cool when your "tests" actually work out and can be made into something to sell (or keep!) I am going to start listing these pouches on Etsy starting tomorrow.

I had a helper who tried to eat any threads that fell on the floor all day....Then he runs when I try to pull them out of his mouth. But you would never know by this pic what a pain in the rear he is. Aww.

    So cute. I think at some point I'm going to give in to my desire for batcat pj's. :) Is that something you think you might be able to make?

  2. Haha. I feel like I OWE it to you to try....You know, I think you have been waving this fantastic idea in front of my face and I just didn't see it, but a little lightbulb just went off! I COULD STAMP IT. DUH. :-D

  3. They turned out wonderfully well. I love the imperfect/splotchy look...like the fabric is worn.

    I have a bunch of thread collectors too. Cats always look so sweet in photos.

    If you ever decide to test those pj's you know I'm good for buying your first pair!!! :) Just let me know... I keep forgetting that your not on xanga anymore, it's not until I check your shop that I remember you're on this side of the internet.
