Paper Stencil Printing

I was doing some paper stencil printing today and feeling pretty good with the result after trying and experimenting with different techniques a few times. Achieving design with more intricate strokes and details now without ink leak to the sharp edges of the graphic was a improvement for me. One might say that such fabric print can be easily mass produce with silk screen printing or even digital printing with more colors and almost limitless design possibilities, so why bother spending precious time doing a one time only printing? And that 'one time' printing is precisely the answer! To me, it is a direct communication from the crafter/artist effort to who ever is going to possess it in the end. The value is not merely the price tag but something more as in all handmade craft. :)
