I can't figure out how to get my image onto the stamp material to carve it.  I tried covering the back with pencil and then tracing over the outline, but I just got a big smudge.  What else should I try?

hmm that usually works for me, or you could try carbon paper or cut out the design and trace round it?

Trace the design onto tracing paper, then flip the tracing paper over (so the penciled side touches the carving material) onto the carving material, then carefully but firmly rub the back.  The pencil will release from the tracing paper much easier than from regular paper.

If it is a printed image, you can do toner transfer too - a photocopy or laser toner print out (in the opposite direction your ant) and then using acetone, or Copic blender marker, or whatever to transfer the toner image onto the material.

Thanks!  The tracing paper worked.  (Well, actually, I couldn't find my tracing paper, so I tried tissue paper. It worked like a charm.)
