INKLING: Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress plus a Giveaway

Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress via homework | carolynshomework.comI’m so pleased to share with you my very first attempt at letterpress. I’m a huge fan of letterpress and I couldn’t wait to try out my Lifestyle Craft Evolution machine with letterpress plates.

This piece was made using the orange ink. I made several of these using various floral plates placed randomly.
