Back in December, I share the results of my first foray into stamp carving. I used Geninne Zlatkis's book Making an Impression: Designing and Creating Artful Stamps to instruct me on the basic technique and to provide my first few designs. Then I branched out to some designs from other books, as well as some freehand efforts.
I've picked up my lino cutter and some Speedball Speedy Cut carving block several times over the past few months, and I want to take you through a little "Gallery Walk" of the carved stamps I've added to my collection.
The Art Journal Workshop. I think these could use a little work, too, but they could work on a certain style page.
A Beautiful Mess. Then I created a little house with an interchangeable roof. I think it needs some work (I was just using up my scraps to create the roof options), but I love the idea!
an earlier blog post.
And you can check out my ever-growing bank of ideas for stamp carving designs on my Pinterest board. I have loaded up on Speedy Carve blocks, so there will be plenty more hand-carved stamps in my collection soon!
