Today I found time to charge the carved design and print it on the dried background. I decided to use an off white acrylic paint instead of printing ink. This way I can go over it with acrylic paint after it dries and wash out some of the color. I carefully measured the size of the stamp and the background to try and line everything up - math is never the fun part!
I love doing this project each year. Finished banners are to be hung up and down our main street in a couple of weeks to promote the upcoming festival. Banners will be auctioned off during the event.
