Thought I'd post a photo of the hand carved stamps that I made last weekend. I'm really happy with how most of them came out. Years ago one of the girls in my doll club taught us how to make these. I had all the stuff on hand because, as usual, when I get excited about something I buy, buy, buy. Then I lose interest and the supplies sit for years, because as we all know, as soon as you throw it out you will want or need it!
So these are carved onto a material called Soap Eraser that I got from Dick Blick. The tools I used were a speedball carving tool and an exacto knife. They are kind of primitive but I like it!
