This is gorgeous! White on brown paper is one of my favorite combinations. I've been using your tutorial for my first attempts at carved stamps this week and can't wait to try them out on wrapping paper. It's quite addicting! Wonderfully so! Thanks for the constant inspiration!
just found you through Artful Blogging mag. LOVE all your birds! and thanks for the great stamp carving tutorial, i took a mini-class a few years ago and now you've inspired me to get out my supplies and start making new stamps. yours are so lovely!
Very nice! I love that birdie stamp. I also noticed you stamped your pomegranate onto a moleskin journal. I'm planning on making a planting journal for my dad's birthday. I've just got to make some sort of "planty" stamp. I really like your different sized pot stamps. You can do so much with that! Thanks for all the stamp inspiration!
So lovely, like all of your projects! You truly are incredibly talented. I love projects like this that combine my love of hand-carved stamps and my love of bird images.
I have a big roll of kraft wrap that I picked up at IKEA several years ago. I've only tried once to use my hand-carved stamps on it, a leaf design stamped in opaque inks. It wasn't as nice as yours, but not bad for a first try. You've inspired me to give it another try!
I really like your tutorials on making stamps. This seemed like so much fun - I went to buy linoleum cutters and can`t wait to start making stamps. The thought of re-use my own design over and over again on letters, as a "logo", as decoration - it will be so much fun! And I think your artwork is awesome and joyfull. :)
I`m sorry if it turnes out I`ve already written you a comment here, but I can`t find it. Anyway - great tutorials on how to make stamps! I`ve bought linoleum cutters and I`m ready to make stamps :) I have gone through a lot of your pictures and they are so nice and joyfull. And this wrapping paper is lovely. Keep up the good work
