Hi!

As my partner Bigbangmomma received her package for the OWS 150 swap I can post the stamp I made.
She said she loved sloths and a stamp so that's what I made.
I searched the internet for inspiration and came up with this one.

This is one of the more difficult stamps I made so as you can see I am not experienced Cheesy
Also, while cutting this, I gave myself a new scar!
(I have made lots of models for my architecture studies, never cut myself, I make 1 stamp, ...)



this is the drawing I started with




I was lucky that my bf was cutting wood for a project and made him cut a tiny piece of wood to mount this sloth on.



Hope she likes it Cheesy

Really cute! You may have given me the courage to try stamp-carving. I got some materials on sale before Christmas, but havent been brave enough to open the package!

Thanks everyone!

@endymion: that's how I did this! I first tried it with an east dog paw drawing and an eraser and a exacto-knife. Then got the real material on sale, (Just 3 little sheets though) and those fancy cutting things, but I like the knife better Cheesy just try it and share it! I'd love to see your result!

@gozer: ah! That's a great idea!

Soooo cute! I love the idea of a stamping that on an envelop. Now I'm thinking about making a stamp for card sets, hmmm...
I started carving with erasers & bought a larger rubber block once but honestly, the eraser was just as good.
I've tried carving with an exacto but I most like using a wee cuticle cutter. It's very precise & near impossible to cut yourself with. I found one at the dollar store for a buck.
