I was thrilled to see an "Inspired By Nature" Challenge on Craftster. Something I have enjoyed doing for some time is watching the birds who come to feed in my backyard. They inspired me to carve these stamps in their likeness.
Though many birds visit us daily, I have chosen my favorites to carve and share.
Each stamp was carved on white PZKut Material (this type is no longer made, I just stocked up on it a while back). I used a laser printer and iron to transfer my image. An exacto knife and Speedball Carving Nibs were used to carve the designs. All images were stamped in black pigment ink. I used some Crayola Colored Pencils to color in each design.
The stamps will now be hidden in letterboxes and placed in nature for fellow letterboxers to find.
