I’ve designed two floral patterns using the rubber stamping technique. It was just another experiment, but I made some little envelopes with those designs, and it was fun.
I used Tsukineko MEMENTO Due Drop dye ink to enjoy the transparent effect and mixture of colouus.
I picked up a colourway and stamped on an envelope shape.
Those little envelopes are for a Japanese New Year’s custom. Japanese children receive some money from their relatives at New Year’s and it’s called “otoshidama” or “New Year’s gift money”. What a wonderful world for children! (I’ve been there)
After a while, I decided to create a digital pattern from this design, and here’s the result. Because those designs weren’t made to be scanned into PC, the outline of the each background block is obvious. But I think it’s acceptable or even it can look nice as a character of block printing. You can see the design on my Spoonflower shop.
