GPP Street Team Crusade #18-Cut it out!


I carved another stamp, this one of a photo of my daughter. Her features still need refinement, but I think I need a sharper blade before I attempt that! I used the photocopy filter in Photoshop to get the black and white image.

Kim...this is awesome. I have been wanting to make one of my son but haven't found the right pic yet. Love this one you made :)

Kim - this turned out fabulous!! I am too chicken to try a portrait. Thanks for leading the way, and sharing with the team so that we may all get the courage to try it. Save this image to use for a stencil next month!

Amazing! you have done a wonderful job with this carving.

This is great! Any ideas how to do this without Photoshop? Could it possibly work by fooling around with a photocopier? Hmm!

Thanks Kim! I have been trying to figure out how to come up with a template to work off of for a face...and you have done it! I never thought of PhotoShop! Your carved image is wonderful!

Oh my gosh, that is so cool! Will you do one with me on? just kidding, though it would be nice to see the photo of her too? thanks for sharing!

Very graphic and neat. I love it. I will try this one. It's a great honor to the person, and it's a one of a kind background stamp for sure! Thanks.

Kim,
Your Stamp turned out absolutly fab-o! I think I like the simplicity of it just like it is...but then again I'd like to see it with some more detail too... :-)

Have a great hair day! Becci
