A rectangle, a square, a triangle and a stamp

I needed to make some fiber postcards in the theme of "Houses" and boiled my design down to the basic shapes - rectangle, square and triangle. I had already carved a stamp in the shape of a window for a different project, so that came in handy for printing. Then I played with composition. Here are four of the ten I made today. Of course, none of these would pass building codes...









The seals I stamped in magenta ink are from fellow Nature Printing Society member Fred Mullett's Red Pearl stamp site.
