I have always loved to print things, and am experimenting quite a lot with a few types of printmaking when I can, noticeably monoprinting, drypoint and collagraphy, since they are more accessible if you don`t have a press and there`s no chemistry involved! That was my sister`s forté at school, not mine!!
But as a painter, I also love to be able to use printing techniques in my paintings, and alongside other things, I sometimes use my handmade rubber stamps. Quite an addictive process, I warn you!
As a sideline to my fine art and illustration practice I have decided to squeeze a bit more use out of my stamps by making handmade original greetings cards. These are virually mini works of art, signed, and can be framed and hung, doubling as a nice gift for someone special or even a treat for yourself.
All cards measure 14 cms or 5.5 inches square and include a matching decorated envelope.
An example of the back of one of the cards. This one is from the blue peacock design.
PS: the last 4 pictures are not included in the giveaway offer, but similar designs will be offered for sale at a later date.
If you`d like to win one, postage free to anywhere in the world, just head over to my facebook page, and if you haven`t already, please like it, and then share the post or leave a comment below it there, to be in with a chance. The winner will be picked at random next Thursday. Good luck!!
(Failing that, you can buy one from me for £8.00 sterling and postage at cost, via facebook. Discount for multiple purchases. I will also be selling them on ebay, or hopefully, Folksy, soon. The price is comparable to that of bespoke frameable cards on sites such as Not on the Highstreet, and bearing in mind you are buying a totally unique product, is really quite a little bargain!)
