playing with my owl stamp






Having discovered that I collect owl paraphernalia as a hobby, a friend of mine carved an owl from a rubber eraser for me to use as a "mood stamp" on my etegami. Instead, I've been having loads of fun experimenting with it as the focal image of my etegami, trying it out against a variety of backgrounds. I've posted several examples here that share the same accompanying haiku by Santoka for easier comparison. In the spirit of even more experimentation, I used inks and methods that were completely new to me. All the originals have been mailed off to postcrossers.

  1. This quote will resonate with a lot of people and goes perfectly with the owl stamp and somewhat mysterious backgrounds.

  2. What a nice gift! I like seeing your experimentations. They're all beautiful, but I'm rather partial to the last one.

    1. 使いすぎて、ふくろうの目玉が一つ落ちてしまいました。(しくしく)後からペンで入れれば済むことだけど、ふくろうがカワイソウ。
