I originally made some bird prints for my Artist Book - Nest Building Perils and Pleasures

After the book was finished the birds were 'unemployed' so I stamped some prints and moleskines as gifts and they were very popular - a friend suggested I should add them to my shop. Rubber stamp printing is very similar to lino printing except you use a block of rubber to carve instead of lino.

I love birds and I love making rubber stamps so for me this was the perfect combination. I have hand cut the text "Hope is the thing with feathers". I typed the text on my lovely Silver-Reed Silverette Typewriter and scanned it in. Then I enlarged it to twice its size and transferred to the rubber. I used one of my favourite inkpads for the text - London Fog, a lovely grey coloured ink.

All the stamps are drawn from my own photographs (except for the Bower Bird, Budgie and Eider Duck - these were drawn from various bird books). I have used black Archival inks and Fade Resistant Dye Inks for the colours. All inkpads were purchased from the wonderful Blade Rubber Shop in London. http://www.bladerubberstamps.co.uk/site/inkpads.php
