SEA THEME RUBBER STAMP “WOOD BLOCK PRINTS” – GREETING & POST CARDS

HAND-CARVED RUBBER STAMPS MADE INTO POSTCARDS – I hand-carved these rubber stamps to look like woodblock prints, stamped them & then hand water-colored them.  I mailed the postcards to myself to make sure they would survive the USPS postage machines.  This series of greeting cards are made in such a way that the postcards are only temporarily attached!  These are embroidery floss stitches or photo corners on the cards to hold the postcards in place, but then I can remove them to see the lovely sea shell postage stamps & the message!  Some of the cards are also embellished with tiny sea shells, sequins and starfish or shell beads, too!  I entered these cards into a summer theme competition at my greeting card group & will use the post cards in a collaborative art project with San Diego Book Arts.  It’s fun to create something like the hand-carved rubber stamps & then see how many ways I can use them!
