|Adding my designs to a silk/wool blend shawl|
So with a "softer than linoleum" product on the market (for years apparently!) by Speedball, I started carving my own stamps to use on my scarves. To say it was fun was an understatement-it went fast, I was impressed and most of all I was enthused! My own designs-not mass produced ones from the craft stores....what's not to love? :-)

|A few carved in just a day (and used!)|
Using the stamps with textile paint was a blast! I have a new batch of scarves to play with so I can't wait to try them but in the meantime I have two collages of what I worked on so far!
Our frigid temperatures have kept me off the hiking trails until today but the cold is coming back around and I'll be ready!
