STAMP OB­SESSED

Do It Yourself - - What To Do With -

Stamp­ing can quickly be­come ad­dic­tive, whether you’re em­bel­lish­ing tea tow­els, this photo, or some­thing else. Many peo­ple find carv­ing the de­sign from soft blocks sat­is­fy­ing and some­what med­i­ta­tive. The ink­ing, im­press­ing, and match­ing of pat­terns gets bet­ter with prac­tice, and there are color com­bos and designs to suit any DIYer. Ex­per­i­ment with mul­ti­ple ink and towel col­ors (white ink on a dark towel is quite strik­ing), which can give the same stamp a com­pletely dif­fer­ent look.

A MORE RIGID CARV­ING BLOCK MAKES IT EAS­IER TO IM­PRESS LARGER STAMPS, SUCH AS OUR ROOSTER OR STRUNG BEADSDESIGNS.
