Printing on Parchment

I spent all afternoon drawing some small charlottes for runner eraser prints that I will be dropping into places on the large block.  I tried printing the little blocks on the flesh side of a parchment page.  The stamp ink worked fine.  I did not prepare the parchment in any way.  I also taped the drawings that I had transferred to the rubber eraser blocks.  Then I carried the book while walking in the woods and drew tulips and jonquils from the front garden on my way and then unfurling Mayapples and fiddleheads along the trail.  There are hundreds of Mayapples out there this year!  Small umbrellas.  Love the geometry of the great unfurling!
