Second post because I may be getting the hang of this

27 Jun

This is a rubber stamp I just bought on ebay.  I want to make a little 50’s style dress with a full skirt and have this be the border print at the hem.  Do we think I could find a raindrop stamp to do the bodice?  Or maybe it could be raining numbers like the Matrix?

Or perhaps a polka dot bodice would do the trick.  Either way I think this little guy is pretty cool.  He’s like a dejected steampunk Charlie Chaplin.  (Two concepts I am not sure have been formally introduced.)  I think he is either waiting for a thunderclap followed by torrential bininary rain, or is preparing to jump into the abyss, and float gracefully to the ground using his homemade, clockwork propelled, Mary Poppins lawsuit pending, umbrella mobile.  Perhaps he lives on the 26th floor of his apartment building and doesn’t want to bother waiting for the elevator because he is late to catch his bus in some paralell universe version of ‘Modern Times”.

Maybe it should be raining gears?
