What's on Your Workdesk? Wendesday, #201--hand carved stamp

So last night, I wanted a stamp of ocean waves.  And I made one!
It's been a long time since I carved a stamp, and it was very satisfying.

Well, that's it, in the interest of brevity, as well as me getting into the shower and
out the door.  If you leave a comment or follow, I will do my best to hunt you down
and return the favor--see you later, WOYWWers!  (click HERE if you want to be
a woywwer, too!)

This is something that is on my To Do list, it must be so satisfying to create your own stamps.

now I'm really impressed, making your own it takes me all my skill to use them right, never mind make one.

I just bought a carving block and was going to give something like this a try---thanks for the inspiration!

Okay, I just wanna say, having carved stamps from linoleum, erasers and the printmaking/carving blocks--the carving blocks are SO much easier to use, it's just a joy!!

Being a new stamper, I never actually thought of making my own...but what a great idea. That is why this blog hopping thing is so great, we get to learn new ideas from each other. So track me down girlfriend, and join my blog! I will be honored to have you on board! Hugs, Cathryn

Love this! It looks like a work of art in itself with all that texture. Amazing MMx #66

Nifty! I tend to do fun foam stamps as they are dead easy, but not carved them since high school art class. Love the waves.

Oh...LOVE your hand-carved waves stamp!

I have a couple of big boxes of stamps that I carved many years ago. I keep telling myself that I need to get them out and use them again and maybe carve some more.

I have a big 8 by 10 block of Uncle Walters carving block that you can't even get anymore and every once in a while when I open that cabinet, I hear calling my name!

Shelly Schmidt said...

That is awesomely cool! I just bought a few supplies to try to carve me own stamp...... what a neat design you have made- look forward to seeing it on a finished project : )

Nan, I used a block specifically made for carving stamps, but you can use erasers, too.

Having used both, I suggest just getting the carving block--so much more pleasant to work with!
