It's been a awhile since I've done a GPP Street Crusade, so I thought I'd jump in again. This month's challenge is to carve one's own stamps or stencils. I carved this one (the rose) today, trying to add a little texture/shading to it. I started out with a photo of a rose, then applied the photocopy filter in Photoshop to get a two-toned print. I transfered the print to the rubber with rubbing alcohol (I thought it was my acetone, but I was wrong--and it worked!). I was not very patient with my Speedball today.
The following are stamps I carved a few years ago when I was on a petroglyph kick. I especially love the "Bad Kitty" petroglyph. It looks like Serena on a bad hairball day.
