This time I want to present you my very first own stamp design, used on one of the tags I created when playing around with Distress paints for the first time some weeks ago.
I thought the colours of the background were a perfect match with the hot weather - blue sky above, sun heating and you think you can almost see the heat that surrounds you.
As the images are stamped over distress paints, they look somehow transparent with some spots, thus creating a kind of depth combined with a light feel to it.
For my dandelion leaves stamp
I first made a sketch using a pencil
and a dark brush
felt tip pen. After I had transferred the image upside down to my carving block I cut out the shapes carefully. From time to time I made a print for a test to find out where I had to cut off some more. I trimmed the edges of my leaves and grass until I had the desired look. Then my very first self made rubber stamp was ready for use!!! Coooool and so much fun!
The word stamps are from Artistic Outpost, the tiny dragon fly is from DeStempelwinkel.
I enter FSC's "Something New/New Style" challenge with this tag.
