The Feather Print

Originally I was looking for a palm leaf stamp to create a botanical pattern for pillows and bags. Though I could not find any stamp like that I started to use feathers instead. Maybe it still looks more like a feather pattern than palm leafs but I’m pretty happy with the outcome.
