I've been carving rubber stamps lately, something that I thought I would NEVER do ... but I have to tell you, it is SOOOO much fun.
Yesterday I woke up to a text message from Jen Osborn, we are friends on facebook and from time to time we chat back and forth ... I love her art. There weren't any words in the message, just a photo of her 2 latest paintings.
So fun don't you think?
I got inspired ... and I loved her barn, tree and of course her signature skeleton head ... I decided to carve some rubber using her images as inspiration.
I know, I know ... the barn is falling over ... oh well, it happens.
So simple and yet soooo Jen!
Of course I couldn't well enoguh alone ... out came the Glimmer Mists.
So sweet don't you think? Love this one ... I couldn't stop stamping ........!
Here's what you do:
Find a simple image that you like and simply sketch it out onto an eraser or this pink rubber. Next, using the smallest carving blade, outline the image and then cut out the details.
For larger shapes just use a scissor or a craft knife and cut out around the image, then carve out the interior details.
Thanks Jen for the inspiration!
