Carving Stamps

my first carved rubberstamps
I can't believe it ... I finally learned how to carve stamps ... thanks to Nancy in my local art group!! A year ago I was saying no way -- too much work ... but this year I am loving the rough and bold look of carved stamps, so I decided to give it a try. I made one stamp at the group and 7 more over the weekend LOL Mostly I am getting my stamp image ideas from elsewhere, but I'll think up my own designs eventually. I have about 6 more drawings made up already LOL I had no idea how addicting this could be!
