I received my first stamp this afternoon, from IdlersDesign. Actually it's two stamps:



One is a tribal tattoo-style wolf (very cool!) and I'm not exactly sure what the other is, whether it's an abstract design or if I'm just not seeing it, but it's equally cool. I like the thick, yellow rubber they're carved from - it's very heavy.


Here's the print of both stamps.


In addition, she included a dozen stickers printed with other stamps. I didn't get them all into one photo, but here are a few of them. These are really creative!

Thanks, Christina!

Loving them all!  I particularly like the henna birds (great idea!) and the tribal designs!

As for carving material - I love white erasers, but I find that they destroy themselves easily.  (I have two older stamps that basically needed to be remade because they melted into a wicked pile.)

I like carving with "the pink stuff" (Speedball).  The grey stuff is really soft and delicate, although.

I received from kmichele_craftyfae!

Look at this cute monster!  Awwww!  He reminds me of the dustbunnies under my bed.  No matter how often I vacuum, they show up again, (6 pets will do that!  lol) like they have lives of their own.



This stamp is giant!  About 3 inches by 3 inches.

She sent me the cutest little inchie that the monster was modeled after.  I realized I hadn't taken a photo of it, but wanted to post the stamp now.  Hopefully I'll get a chance to post the inchie soon, so everyone can see that as well.  Smiley

Great stamp!  Thanks so much!   Grin

That monster is really cute, great stamp! If I imagine the dust under my bed (and many other places in my house..) to look like this I don't mind it so much anymore  Wink

Hey, there it is! I could see the wings, but not the head. Cheesy

I love the star and wreath, kmichele. The way you've done the wood pattern on the vine is so delicate. If that's the pink Speedball rubber, I must get some. I find the white much too soft too.
