I’ve been in a stamping mood recently. At the same time I was finding I wanted a better, more consistent and organized way to remember my yarn details. So I decided to combine the two loves and make a yarn tag stamp.
I love stamp making. It is meticulously fun in the same way eating a pomegranate is. There’s something so rewarding about making a sketch, transferring it onto the rubber, and making it come to life. The stamp always takes on a bit of a personality of its own, and at least at this stage with my skills, my stamps always come out with that extra homemade touch to them.
Since I intend to use these tags for my yarn I will sell from the farm, I wanted to see if I could make it into a rainbow tag. It took a few tries to find the right colors but finally a nice rainbow appeared. A nice black and white yarn cord highlights the prettiness of the rainbow. Best of all, the tags are made with 100% recycled cardboard, aka my cereal boxes.
I am working on a set of other stamps based on my animal sketches. Hopefully I will be able to make prints to sell in the near future.
