Here's a new Post Card by Roberta Schmidt. I have a little painting I purchased from her Etsy site and this will be a companion to it. Thanks Roberta, she's lovely. I'm so tickled to have her.
The other pic is of a rubber stamp I carved this a.m. I use rows of little people often in my work, and thought it would be fun to have it carved. Sometimes I draw them, sometimes I use stencils that I cut out, sometimes I paint them. This is just one more way I can apply them. I used a new carving tool , a Staedtler brand with the #1 tip, and a hand friendly handle. I like it a lot. I'm using the Speedball Speedy Carve block. It is my block of choice since it carves cleanly and easily.
