I know all too well about buying tons of new supplies then "chickening out" when I get them home... I promised myself this year I would actually use all the wonderful supplies I have in stock... supplies other artists would drool over if they knew I had them just sitting there, lol! What a great stamp design... I'd try mounting it... I think I need to do that as well (and more supplies to buy!!)

Kathy...I am blown away. this is gorgeous. And I even think the pic of it in progress would have been an awesome stamp to match. Love what you made :)

So cool! Isn't it addicting? I have to go carve more now so I can justify running out to buy more rubber! LOL

Your stamp turned out great, I can't wait to start making mine!

It's so cool that you thought to take a pic of the stamp in progress.
And isn't it true that the crusades motivate us and challenge us and give us courage to Get With It.
Thanks for sharing this!

Oh WOW! I love this stamp. The addition of the the tear drop was a great decision.
In regards to the unwanted carved lines, the only ones I can see seem to be around the outside of the image, have you actutally completely cut off the excess rubber from around the outside of the image?(i.e so that the stamp is actually an unusual shape rather than square).

Adorable fellow Michigander!

great stamp Kathy. glad you took the plunge. it is interesting to see the wip. isn't it addictive?

Carrie

Looks great, Kathy! To get rid of the carvey lines you could also try trimming away more of the excess on the corners, maybe. Like Michelle does with her stamps. Anyway, I love the design you carved, it's really cool!

Hi Kathy,
the stamp looks GREAT and so cool to see how it evolved!! Hope you will remind this when there is another NEW thing waiting for you: afterwards it is not that scary at all, isn't it? Hedwig

I love that stamp, it has almost a paisley feel to it, and I loved seeing it in process. Thanks! -Kim

Kathy - glad you caught the bug....you're infected like the rest of us now *big grin* I don't like the carvey lines either and try to scrape most away but sometimes it's cool to see - depends on the image. Maybe don't ink it so heavily - or add a backing like you said. This is a great stamp and love hearing how you added in the last bit while in the process. Thanks for sharing with the team.

Hi Kathy -

Found you over at (seth's) thealteredpage!

w.o.w. This is a GORGEOUS homemade STAMP! You are soooo inspiring that I gotta get off my duff now and order my supplies :^D

I love the way you presented your WIP. So many simply show the actual stamp... Can you recommend a type of block?
