Hand-carved Stamp, 2015
3" x 3"
Speedy Carve, cutters #1 and #2
Here's a first attempt at a stamp that can be repeated to make a larger design. The flower shape is from one of my sketchbooks. The design at the upper left is my first print. The lower right design shows the final changes to the stamp. Each design is made by repeating the stamp four times and rotating it by 45 degrees. The completed stamp is in the middle. I found that if I cut away the extra of the 3" x 3" block, it made for neater print edges. I may tweek it a little - clean up the edges of the leaves.
