I had fun with these they are all carved out of erasers using my speedball.  It's been a few years since I've carved stamps so I'm glad to see I can at least still do it lol. 





Edited to add it's been a few years since I've carved a stamp with my speedball (it'd been MIA in my stash of supplies for quite some time now) I've done some with my exacto knife set but much prefer the convenience of the speedball for carving Smiley

it's a little cutter blade set made for cutting stampwork.  http://www.dickblick.com/zz402/03/ here is a link to dickblick it shows what it looks like, really a fantastic nifty tool Smiley

and another I find text to be very difficult but this is by far the best text I've ever done (I just completed this one a few minutes ago)  Backwards cursive writing is hard lol  the print is a little inconsistent as I didn't get the ink applied evenly but I still think it turned out quite pretty Smiley

oh, wow. I had forgotten you can use erasers to create stamps. your stamps are beautiful!
I especially love the left most two in the first picture and the text one is great! the unevenness adds to the style of the stamp

These are really great! I never considered using the entire stamp as a mini artwork. I must try this sometime Cheesy

These are darling!  I am now wanting to carve stamps.  I have a feeling that mine would let me down though, since I've never made a stamp before.  Thanks for the inspiration! Smiley
