I love the weekend! This is when I get to be creative and use all my crafting toys. Last night I decided to get dirty…
That means Letterpress! Letterpress is dirty work because you have to get inked up. First you scoop out ink with you ink knife. You work your ink a bit with the knife and then dab it on the letterpress ink disk. The letterpress rollers go over the disk to collect a thin layer of ink and then rollover the blocks and letters to deposit the ink. I can not do this process without getting ink all over me, no matter how hard I try.
So what did I make? Cute mini notecards with an ordinary bicycle (AKA old fashioned bicycle or a penny farthing). The cards are 2.25 by 2.25 and are printed on Lettra cotton cardstock with brown black ink. I then made mini envelopes to match out of craft colored card stock.
One thought on “Penny Farthing for Your Thoughts?”
These are really cool cards! I like how they transport me back to another place and time.
