Stamp Carving

Needing to rest, but restless...




I would have been angry with myself
if I didn't carve 
at least one stamp this week.

My love of all things Poppy
is no secret.
This was simple and quick
and makes me happy.
Oh, and I love
London Fog
gray ink.

Your newest carved stamp is so fun. What is this London Fog gray ink? I really like the softness of it. Rest and renew your energy my dear...

Look at that.. I just love it. I have never made my own stamp. But it look like it would be fun. Get some rest my friend..

Hugs, Linda

Oooo my this stamp is amazing. What do you carve into? I have some lino cutters somewhere from years gone by - school I think - that would probably qualify them as antique haha!
Love the London Gray ink too!
Hope this weekend you find a space to rest!!!!!

Wow, love your poppy stamp!! How fun! I tried carving but used the old fashion lino stuff and it was NOT like cutting butter, I ended up with bandaids everywhere!!

I just started carving eraser stamps to help with my own restlessness and agitation, and found I loved it! I hope to soon get some carving blocks to try something a little larger. Your poppy pod is beautiful, and I'm enjoying your blog!
