I Made More Stamps! (Lesson 2)


Stamp Carving 101
I finally got around to watching Lesson 2 from my stamp carving class! These are the stamps I just made:

Everywhere you see black specs not on the main stripes is a boo-boo. :(  I didn't clean them up well enough. We made two stamps because they nest/intertwine. In theory, we were supposed to cut out alternating stripes so that when we stamp them in 2 different colors, they look like they were meant to go together. Mine? Not so much.

Here's the card I made using them (we are supposed to make tags, but pffth - I am such a rebel.):

Like I said: IN THEORY these are supposed to fit nicely together. ;/ 

Here is a close-up so you can see all my boo-boos:

 Yep, another "rustic" version of the assignment. I'll not be surprised if the teacher keeps me after class next time to have a few words with me.

Oh, and this card is, again, all remnants. I am so very proud. :D

Thanks for stopping by!

PS: The card uses the sketch from Skipping Stones Designs.

  3. I like the slight overlap effect...to me they look like that should be the design and not the other way around...great stash card too...love it!
