Stencil


On Friday, when I was printing business cards for Saturday's market, I suddenly remembered a stencil I cut ages ago, based on a pattern chart for a crochet doily. A few swipes of an ink roller later, some pretty cards!

It might be worth trying this on fabric - tomorrow. I was planning to print the protea lino today, but the weather isn't playing along. Although I optimistically washed some fabric for printing, it's just not drying fast enough. I may be suffering from a bit of stage fright too, after showing off the lino block prematurely (but thank you for all your lovely comments!)

Beautiful Business Card. What a great idea for a stencil!

And don't worry if you never actually print any proteas - the lino is a stunning work of art all on it's own.

I love this stencil, it reminds me of the powdered sugar designs you sometimes see on cakes.
