Coming Soon-Block Printed Table Numbers
I was recently commissioned to make these for a wedding. It was a long tedious job carving each of these somewhat large scale numbers, but well worth the time.
I used the design from my "Lady Edna" stationery. I carved that block print years ago, inspired by a feed sack apron I have from the mid 30's.
I'm not sure if everyone would dig the birds as much as I do(it was actually the customers idea, she must have noticed that I do a LOT of bird stuff).
I suppose I could change them according to theme...
Either way, I'll be listing them in my shop, sans birdies at first, and with a variety of choices for card stock.
I can't wait to do more printing. I'll be moving my studio shortly, from my upstairs main floor, to my basement. Once that's finished, I'll be printing like a mad woman!
I've also just started listing my pill boxes and yoyos. I may do some needle cases soon, we'll see.
They were fun to make though. I always enjoy finding new surfaces to block print!
