Moths

Moth Stamps
White moths
I got carried away carving yesterday.
Love the white ink against that gorgeous deep blue
handmade paper I bought at our local art supply shop.
It reminds me of Japanese indigo shibori fabric.

Are you carving on erasers? I can't find nice bit chunky erasers like that, I love them. Such pretty butterflies!

I love the look of the white ink on that lovely deep blue background. I found some white pens at a local shop that produces a similar look but I like the idea of ink which would work better for stamping applications. May I ask what brand ink you are using here?

esta muy lindo!
una consulta, su libro de tallado solo esta en ingles?, lo quiero comprar pero si saldrá una versión en español, es mejor esperar?
soy de Chile, después de una gran búsqueda pude encontrar las gubias para linóleo (speedball), ahora lo que no hay por acá son los bloques para tallar, así que practico en pequeñas gomas. gracias!!

Wow! Love the moths, the deep blue paper and white ink... the combo is amazing! I just bought some white pigment ink. I'm hoping I can use it with my paintings.

beautiful night time moths! Today I bought a block to carve in anticipation of receiving your book, hopefully tomorrow!

Hi Geninne, Today I already received your marvellous book (I live in the Netherlands). I am so glad with it. It even exceeds my expectations (those were already high...)! Thank you for creating it. I am very inspired by your designs and I will make a start by carving eraser stamps. Here in the Netherlands it is difficult to obtain carving blocks. On the internet prices for shipping are often higher than a block itself......So I will have to obtain some skills on eraser stamps before beginning with some more serious work.
Thanks again.

Geninne, I am an old fan of your work/ talents. And also a proud owner of many birds...
My husband is going to Mexico next week (we live in Chile now) and I wonder if it is possible to buy the blocks for carving in Mexico. I can't find them here in Chile.
Thank you for always sharing your gorgeous work and giving us the illusion that it is so easy.
I particularly adore your photos. You're such a multitask artist. Congrats, dear.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this was Japanese indigo fabric. So pretty.

Btw, I'm thinking of getting a moth tattoo because they love wool just as much as I do...

I'm wondering where you purchased such THICK carving material? What I have found at Michael's (and used) is at least half that thick. Lovely new stamps! Lynn

Gorgeous! Indigo shibori fabric is what I thought, too. This would make a beautiful table runner with blue & white oriental pottery. Will we see this in your etsy store?
