Hand Carved Stamps
I like to make my own stamps to use in my art. I draw on plain paper and then outline everything in a charcoal pencil. I take a speedy cut block and rub my charcoal drawing onto the block. Then my lines show up and I can carve them out. I test my stamp with ink and keep carving the lines until they are just the way that I want them. Then I can use my new stamp in anything that I want to.
