This is the end result of those pieces of rubber that I was playing with over the weekend and I am so happy with it!
I wish I had added a stem to the pod at the top, but I can carve an individual stem or create a few different stems to add to the seed pod as I go along.
Ken is going to help me make some plexiglass bases to mount the stamps on to make it easier to apply to the fabric.
I'm not going to lie, it took me a number of tries to get a feeling for the carving tools that I am using. Lot's of rubber scrap bits that had to be tossed, but it's all about the process, isn't it? I really enjoyed mixing the paint colors to create a color that was pleasing against the natural linen as well.
I can tell I am going to have a lot of fun with this!
