Pepper post part 4

The Pepper Adventures continue. 


Dog for packaging being pressed into good use with a bit of funky foam. 


The resulting print. Not bad. 


Bit of added colour using Ink Tense pencils.  Think I prefer the simple black on this background ( you'll note that I am still using the old paper back book to great effect). 


And two more print blocks ( I cut the funky foam with scissors and sometimes a craft knife and stick it onto the card with PVA.  Some people use that mounting block stuff that framers use, but I must admit I find card works just fine). 



Hmm - not so sure about these. 

Now today I have the pleasure of doing a bit of online shopping at  http://www.handprinted.net.  I will report back with my purchases.

  1. Very effective and look like peppers! I doubt mine would if I made some stamps.

    1. You know I am sure they would. Look for simple images to assist when I am uncertain of the shape and form.

  3. I am not sure how I will use them though - well not yet any way ( but you can never have too many of these stamps)

  4. There is nothing quite like a bit of funky foam for quick print blocks. Love the shapes in the top block on its doggy ground ...

    1. Borrow any of my ideas for inspiration if you wish. I will try to assemble a photo of them all for you. I ought to do a little video of how to make them.
