I'm always game for trying something new, so I recently made a sheet of artistamps. Artistamps are faux postage stamps - artist created stamps, which are often made for decorating mail art or for trading with other artists.
I used a vintage photo from my personal collection for the stamp image. The photo features a woman outdoors; wearing a newsboy cap and sitting with her stocking legs exposed. A cigarette hangs from her mouth.
I decided that VINTAGE BADASS was an appropriate title for the stamp - 56 cents denomination, Issued by Barkie Post. (Why Barkie? My maiden name, which became my official middle name after marriage is BARKET. Close friends call me Bark or Barkie).
A total of 15 stamp sheets were made for this limited series.
