My First Homemade Stamp!

As I mentioned in my previous post I have recently become interested in learning how to make stamps. Well, I made my first one. It's nothing special, just a heart but I just wanted to try and see if it really was as easy as it looked.

First I drew the heart on the eraser.

Then I carved around it like so..

Here's what it looked like once stamped.

Then I went a bit further and carved out the middle of the heart so that the stamp would just be the outline of the heart. Sorry this one is kind of blurry.

And this is the final product :)

Verdict: It IS pretty easy! The erasers are definately a cheap alternative to the carving blocks that you get at Michaels or any artsy stores. Anyways I just thought I would share my little crafting adventure with you guys :)
