These are my first two attempts at carving my own stamps. The first one was done on a white plastic eraser. The second was carved on a Speedball carving block. It took some time and patience, particularly on the second carving, as it is so intricate. Neither is as clean as I would like, but I'm happy with my first images. They are fine for journal art and collage. Thank you "greylady" for encouraging me to "just do it". My granddaughter helped me get started on the second one. It was a little daunting to me with all the little corners and turns. It's so much fun to try new techniques.
