Sunday Stamps # 156

It's Saturday Night in the USA, and already Sunday in some parts of the world! It's time for Sunday Stamps.


This week's theme is folk art.  I like textile folk art so much I thought about specifying that, but I suspected you may have trouble finding textile stamps.  But I did!

 
This stamp from Russia show part of a cotton scarf from Karabonovo (if I have that right), thanks to a Russian Postcrosser.  And it is an unusually-shaped stamp too - a bonus.  What delightful colors!  A shadow of this textile tradition lives on in the red bandannas of the USA, with their intricate border designs.  Bandannas though are usually just one color plus black and white only.
 
Please join me with any folk art stamps, from any tradition.
 
Theme next week:  Flowers.
Theme week after that: Chinese or Taiwanese stamps, in honor of a belated Chinese New Year.

Just today I posted a card with the same stamp - http://worldcometomyhome.blogspot.ro/2014/02/1001-russia-lenin.html#more . :) A wonderful series, Arts and crafts of Russia - Shawls.

The shape is so perfect for textiles.

I would never have thought of textiles, not that it would have made any difference if I had. Folk art was hard enough. Fine stamp and textile design.

It seems a very special stamp!

the colours are so lovely! is the heart a part of the design as well or? cos it certainly blends just right :)

I love the shape, triangled, while the pattern seems to be rectangled usually. Nice!
