I wanted to share my first stamps carved with actual carving tools (instead of just an x-acto knife!) I think this is also the first project I've shared on the boards here outside of swaps.



A roller coaster, bacon, D10 dice, letter 'S', cat, pickle, and Hunger Games.

I just got a lesson in stamp carving last weekend.  I can appreciate the work that went into these.  Good job, you!

That bacon carved stamp turned out splendid! Smiley  Did you have a better time carving with the tools (as compared to using the x-acto knife)?

Oh yes, it was so much easier with the tools.  I found out just last night that doing small areas enclosed (like in letters) is easier with the x-acto knife though. Hope that helps!
