These were very easy techniques and you may be very familiar with them, but maybe not, so I am showing them here.
This is a dense foam block, made specifically for this purpose. You heat the block either with a heat gun, which I do not have, or an iron. I covered the block with parchment paper then put a hot iron on it for several seconds, then immediately pressed the back onto some objects that have been placed on a hard surface. Of course this was buttons.
I used a red ink pad, the only one I had that wasn't dried up, so you will see red ink on all of these blocks. It was printed on light blue fabric. I think I want to make some note cards using this stamp.
On the other side of the block I used those big quilting pins with the big yellow heads.
One of the cool things about these blocks is that you can reheat them and the impressions will disappear and you can do a different design.
I have some dense foam children's building books that can be used this way, too. However none of them give a very big surface, so I just did this one with paper clips.
I am trying to put together a quilt using one of the soy wax resist pieces I showed you last week so I did some more printing with that end in view.
Here I made a stamp by wrapping rubber bands onto a stamp with a wooden base. I've done this before and like the results. I brushed white acrylic paint onto the band with a foam brush.
Now I'm going to see how these pieces will work together. Stay tuned.
I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
