Pattern Play: A Simple Block Printed Pattern

It was nice to be able to squeeze this pattern play on a busy day.

Starting with a doodle, I just carved a block of rubber into this simple shape and repeated stamping. It always amazes me how one motif makes a pretty pattern which might be used as wallpaper. I will try other colourway another day.
