Stamped stationery

I´ve been considering teaching a demonstration class in linocutting and hand-carved stamps at the local library. [This didn´t come to pass as I´ve been too busy.] I´ve used or given away alot of the things I´ve printed already, so I bought some sepia block printing ink and printed a few sample pages, cards, and envelopes. They turned out really well. Block printing ink is a lot thicker than the fabric ink I´ve been used to. As you´d expect, it prints a lot better on paper and it´s easier to apply the tiny amounts required for paper.
