Making your own...cont'd















There is so much freedom in carving your own stamps and making your own stencils. I doodle a lot, and when I hit on something I really like, I make it. If you can't find what you want ready-made, consider making it yourself.

  7. Carved stamps are also so special. A lot of work goes into them. I have tried lino cutting and found it quite painful (cut fingers) and exhausting. I love your stamps and might try getting some rubber carving material next time.
