How's this for a first time attempt at creating a rubber stamp? My niece designed and carved it. I'm so proud of her! Isn't it great?! I think she's a natural.
A couple of people have asked how you go about making a rubber stamp. It's similar to making a lino print really. I've got a block of speedystamp that I use or you can use a normal eraser. Then using lino cutting tools or a craft knife you carve your design remembering that you carve away the bits you don't want to print and that your design will print as a mirror image. We used a Brilliance pigment ink pad from the local craft shop to make the print.
