While taking the class at Donna Downey’s studio, Donna showed us how to carve a stamp. I carved some stamps in December 2015 when Julie Balzer hosted a Carve December challenge. I love how Julie Balzer’s stamps create a repeating pattern when stamped multiple times on a tag. Julie’s book “Carve Stamp Play” helped me so much. I became addicted. I haven’t carved a stamp in a while due to other projects that I have been playing with. When carving this stamp, I was inspired by Carrie Lynn Cordero’s Self Love 365 Day 28 design. The right side of my stamp above reflects Carrie’s tangle pattern image found here. Tomorrow I will post how I used this stamp on a page.
