BLOG × During my morning walk today I saw a lot of birds. Swallows were flying up to their nests in the nooks of roofs, ducks were diving under water. It gave me inspiration to start my new series: birds!

Ever wanted to see how I make these multi colored stamps? Here a picture to explain!

I first carve out a block that contains all the lines I need. The second block(s) are for colors. When a print needs more than one color I either carve one block and mix the colors while applying. This gives a nice faded effect. And when I don’t need fading I can carve more than one blocks for an even color.

I really enjoy making multi colored prints and the process of it. And I love that every print is different, every fading is different… because it’s handmade.
