My stamps.


I have to tell you about the stamps I made yesterday.

They're ment for use in a project I'm working on, but there's no way I can't share them with you.
All you need to make these are : a sketch of what you'll make into a stamp, fairly thin rope, a good glue, I use rice glue, matte medium or some fluid acrylics, and some sturdy cardboard. That's it.

I saw this tecknique on you-tube and was so inspired that I had to try it. And now, that I have a specific reason to make them, it's even more fun.

I made a tree, the red one first to see if I could do it. I could, but am not sure that this tree will do it in my project. I made a second one and I like it alot better. My stamps are sized to fit a A5 sheet.
By now I have made several tests, focusing on the stamp alone. Today I'm going to figure out how to achieve the right background. I have a vision of how I want it to be, so I'm searching untill I'm close to it.

The small ones abowe are just my first attempts to see if the stamp would do the job. Wow, this is so cool! I can feel I'm on my way to something here.
Have a try yourself, they are really cheap to make. Cost next to nothing!
Now my stamps are waiting for further adventures, have a nice day folks!

  1. Jennibellie has so many great ideas. I like this one and might give it a try. Your tree project sounds have me curious as to what you're up to.
