Vacation Stamp Carving Results
As I mentioned before we left on vacation, I took some stamp carving supplies along on vacation with us. You can see the little kit I took above: ink, carving tool, mechanical pencil, ballpoint pen, Sharpie marker, and Speedball carving material. I precut the pieces before I left taking a bunch of 1" square pieces and a few 2" x 3" pieces.
I worked through lessons 1-3 of Stamp Carving 101, and also created some extra images.
Lesson 1: Heart
I wasn't that happy about my first attempt (second from left), so I did it twice. Then I created a couple extra images using the same technique. I'm most excited about the @ symbol - I think that stamp will get a lot of use in my layouts.
Lesson 2: Stripes Set
Lesson 3: Contained Chevron
I also created some stamps. The first three I'm planning to use for borders/backgrounds, and the little arrow is going to be another really useful one for layouts.
It was nice to be able to still do some creating on vacation, this class is so much fun and I can't wait to work on the next lesson!
Hope you had a good end to your week and are staying cool!
