Stamp carving

Stamp carving and Japanese stab bound books

Wow, it's been months since I've posted in this blog! I've been busy working on keeping up with school and work plus opening my own shop at etsy: Greenleaf Arts - there are only three things in the shop right now, but I'll be adding more by the end of the week. In the mean time, I've discovered how fun stamp carving is. I'm building up a nice collection of stamps and they're much cheaper than buying professionally made stamps. The two in the picture above were gifts for some friends.

Those are hot! They don't have that almost-cool-but-not-quite look of so many handmade stamps. And they also don't look like every other girly-face/ wonderwoman face out there. Quite a feat!

I really like those. I haven't done stamp carving since high school.

Wow! I'm so glad everyone liked my stamps! Thanks for all of the lovely comments - all of you have made my day! :-)

I think I'll post a little stamp carving tutorial later in the week. Sixleaf - I used Speedball's lino cutter and an eraser block from Mastercarve. Some people can carve stamps with an exacto knife, but I haven't mastered that skill yet. I need the different nib sizes from Speedball!

yes - that is wonder woman! She's awesome! I think Joss Whedon (the guy behind the Buffy tv show) is going to be making a Wonder Woman movie! Speaking of Buffy, I think Spike would make a great looking stamp....
