A bit of great press!

Some nice press for the ol' Pink Bathtub... I recently started advertising on a super cool designy blog based in the UK called Print & Pattern. It is a fabulously dizzying treasure trove of colors, patterns, textures, great design and, of course, cool products. The blog gets thousands of hits a day. I guess as a benefit of being a sponsor, she did a very extensive posting on my cards. Check it out here.

Thank you P&P!

Have been visiting your blog and also saw your write-up on print&pattern! I love your work. It's really bright, bold and original.
After being inspired by a few of my fave blogs I'm about to try doing some lino prints, as my sis bought me some lino and tools for Xmas. I just wanted to pick you brains about a coupla things, hope you don't mind! Which inks you think are best for printing onto paper? Also what is the rubber stuff that you use for your printing? I have seen some advertised as easy-carve rubbery stuff but am not sure whether this will be better than lino, ie it may preserve my fingers a bit!!
Hope you don't mind me asking
Kind regards

Hi Sue and thank you for your nice comments!

I use Staedtler Mastercarve Artist carving blocks which I get from Dick Blick. Then I use a variety of ink pads which can be purchased from I try to use ones that are fade resistant.

Hope that helps:)

I just love your cuts they are a great use of color and pattern. I was wondering where you get your cello envelopes? and if you print the text on your computer for your recipe cards etc?
