Stamp Carving :: a mini tutorial


I was really in the mood
 to carve some botanical stamps the other day, 
ones to use to make repeat patterns in my journals...



 or for cards, bookmarks, etc.


There are lots more great tutorials out there
but feel free to ask me any questions.
You know I love to hear from you!

Thank you for inspiring me to hunt out my stamp carving stuff.... I'm going to give this a try today!!!!

It is still very humid here, so nice to have sun and blue skies but so hard to get anything done! I hope you are managing :)
