Vintage Fashion Stamps

Digital stamps are a whole new thing to me, I didn’t even know that they existed! But when I look at the small bin of single-use wooden blocks that I have taking up space on my supply shelf, I can definitely see the advantage. I’ve been creating these coloring sheets for a while to practice my inking and linework so I used the content from the latest one to try making stamps. And of course, there’s a class for that!

The Museum Drawer coloring pages are based on vintage accessories found mostly in the collection of the Costume Museum of Canada (I was a curator there for many years). That month’s theme was hair combs and pins (sign up to get these sheets emailed!)

I still have difficulty getting smooth lines using my tablet (more practice needed!) so I inked on the page like I usually do rather than pushing through with the transparency technique in the class. I’m going to keep working on that one though.

Got it cleaned up and saved as a PNG file.

There’s a limit of 5 files for digital download on Etsy so I broke the sheet up a little into groups and went with that. They’ll accept zip files though so maybe I’ll try that another time.

I’ve also never been really diligent about adding a watermark to my work so it was great to learn a quick method for that!

So these are the stamps listed… lots of stamps, so many stamps.
