so needless to say i was delighted to come across this little hummingbird stamp by getting hooked. i've actually seen a number of hummingbirds before but they are always soo detailed and are always sniffing flowers*. the hummingbird below will be easier to emboss with my powders - something that will be necessary because the envelopes i ordered are black. i can't wait to bring it all together!
getting hooked is neat because she handcuts all of her stamps from rubber in a linocut fashion. most stamps nowadays are done using digital images and machines so it's nice to see that this art form has not died out completely. not to mention this artist has a real sense of shape and form.
* they just can't get enough of the flowers!
