It turns out, it is a lot of fun to do them….kind of relaxing in a way…..
and well I kind of got carried away.
this tree is the largest and most intricate stamp i’ve made….its about 6″ x 6″
lately, i’ve developed a strange obsession with fake mustaches and disguises…so, i made a stamp….errrr. i call him “sexy mustache.”
they are really easy to do and pretty inexpensive. The carving tool (including several inter-changeable sized cutters) is about $7.00, http://www.dickblick.com/products/speedball-linoleum-cutters/ and the printing block costs about $9.00 for an 9″ x 12″ piece of carving rubber, http://www.dickblick.com/products/blick-e-z-cut-printing-blocks/, (which can make a LOT of stamps!)
anywho…i’ve started to sell some stamped greeting cards on etsy which you can see here. no takers so far: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jessbobess
