carved stamps


I made my own stamps 
using rubber gasket material from the hardware store 
and a speedball linoleum cutter

there's a great tutorial on this over at Genine's Art Blog

I bought a speed ball starter set when it was on clearance ages ago. Have never used. Your stamps came out awesome! will have to find it and give it a try!

These are fabulous Kimmie especially the bird. I remember doing this ( badly ) at school.
I love how you have coloured the bird.

These look amazing.....I love lino prints, they have such an earthy, wholesome, folky feel about them. You have done a great job, love the bird on top of the print.

We did this in art sometime in my school career. I don't remember what I made but, well, yeah..thinking they didn't turn out like yours...Now, the last thing I needed was to be tempted with another project that I want to try. But, gosh that looks like fun.

Thanks Kimmie - carving some stamps sounds like a great way to spend some of my Sunday afternoon. Thanks for sharing! Oh - and beautiful carvings. Red gasket rubber - great idea.

These make a great SET. You could SO sell these as a "banner kit" (I read you next post first- confused?) Of course, there IS the issue of cost-effective mass production. :)
