From time to time I grab some of the garbage rubber -- i.e. rubber cut away during the carving process -- and create "garbage stamps." It doesn't mean that the stamps *are* garbage, rather they have been created *from* garbage!
Here's my most recent batch:
The process is pretty much the same for each of the stamps: I take a scrap piece of rubber and trim it down to a shape or size I want to work with and then I attack it with my carving tools!
All in all, this entire collection of itty bitty stamps took me about two-and-a-half hours to carve and print. Pretty amazing! I know I say this every single time, but stamp carving is easier than you think!
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. The winner of the Round Gelli Plates is...
