Sometimes it's fun to get back to the basics - rubber stamping and making faux postage! I don't have any actual "Halloween" rubber stamps but I used what I had to make some disturbing postal imagery for Halloween. I used assorted stamps from various companies plus some from my own Faux Postage collection - carolynsstampstor... Stamping inks are Ancient Page and ColorBox Archival from Clearsnap and StazOn.

06-18-14 - On my work table today - greeting cards right before all the parts are glued together. Techniques used - collage, rubber stamping, stenciling. Some of the stencils are commercial and some are cut by me. Commercial stencils available here - carolynsstampstor...

06-09-14 - Here is what is on my work table - Using some of the stencil/embroidery fabric experiments on recycled fabric to applique onto the front of a wine bag to upcycle it. One piece is for the front and one for the back. I'm sewing fabric pieces and ribbon onto pieces of fusible webbing then will sew around the edges to attach to the pieces to the front and back of the bag.
