Carving stamps on Sunday
One of the things I bought at yesterday’s pop up store, was this deer head. I mean to use it to give the house a Christmas feel…even though I’ll be in England. And this morning, that beautiful deer head put me in mind to do something animaly and Christmasy.
I decided that carving stamps to use on Christmas cards or wrapping paper might be fun.
Chloe was busy working, ( she had some extra weekend work because her boss had to go out of town), but then she finished her work just as I said, “OK, let’s see what I got!”
One fox and one sitka spruce. I love the way these two turned out. C loved the way they turned out. We decided to carve some more. (note to self: never use scratched stamp rubber)
Clover grabbed a piece and designed some lovely trees.
I love C’s graphic style. This will look lovely on anything she stamps with it.
Pretty soon the fox and spruce were joined by an owl, and then a badger.
OK, time to stop and make Sunday supper. But that was so much fun today. I think I’ll carve some more tomorrow. 😀
What a fun project – looks like just the thing for making cards. Love the animals – I like animaly things for christmas too.
Beautiful work! Can’t wait to see your cards or paper when they are complete.
These are absolutely lovely!
So clever .. These stamps are wonderful ?
I think your scratched rubber marks look just great! I thought you had done it on purpose 🙂
I have had my rubber stamp block for too long now – just might get all christmassy with it too!
what fun, i havent done lino cuts since high school
