Thought I would share with you all today my stamp carving exploits. Firstly,it's so enjoyable and I would really encourage everyone to have a go. It's not really expensive and you can save a fortune on background type stamps. I have just ordered a Julie Fei Fan Balzer book also on stamp carving,so hopefully that will provide some more tips and ideas :)
All I would say is start simple until you get the hang of it and know when to stop! It it looks finished and okay,then leave it!
First picture,modelled by my able assistant Saffie,is the starter kit I am using....not sure she was particularly happy in this picture :)
And here you can see a couple of backgrounds I have made with the stamps and the stamps of course.
I particularly like the Ellen Vargo inspired one on the left.
I hope you like it and it's maybe encouraged you to try it out :)
