I tried to upload these pictures with the previous post but it wasn't happening. I got some precut stencils in the mail last week. Someday I will cut my own but for now, this will do. I added the branch on the chickadee piece above.
This is a less successful attempt of using Shiva paintsticks with a purchased rubbing plate. Try as I might I couldn't get everything to stay still. Will have to do some research. It does have a nice texture,so perhaps not a complete lost cause.
More stamps. I am excited to use the crab but I need to dye some fabric, which is why I am wrapping poles and folding and stitching fabric. No point in mixing dye until I have everything ready. I want to attempt more than simple dying, but the resists take a rediculous amount of time.
