Cut It Out!


I was looking for some inspiration and some tips regarding eraser or stamp carving and I came across this fabulous site: Street Team Challenges. This month’s challenge Cut It Out is about making a stamp or stencil. I am a big fun of hand made art journals, but for now I am just watching and getting ready to start my own. With sites like Michelle Ward's and all the links from her site I am not really far from giving it a try.

I am getting a bit obsessed with stamp carving at the moment. What can I say, I just love it!! :)

Roberta - glad you found our team! Thanks for joining in the fun and sharing your carved images with the other crusaders. These are great - love the close-up of that EYE! Lots of great stuff - it's addictive isn't it???

Roberta, your stamps are wonderful! Did I see a lily among them? I love flowers and yours are great. I agree about it being addictive. I'm using even my smallest scraps because I can't seem to stop. Such fun! Welcome to the Street Team.
