This is a carved rubber stamp using a piece of Speedy Carve rubber and a linoleum cutter by Speedball. This is my first attempt at producing a quarter repeat stamp. You get different patterns depending on which corner of the stamp you choose to have as a center point.
I carved and printed these snowmen on various papers, and then I incorporated the stamped images into collages. I especially liked stamping onto tracing paper and then playing with the transparent effect.
Hand carved rubber stamp for Carve It Up! challenge. Original drawing, done on PZ Kut carving block with Speedball lino gouge and Testor knife. 🙂
This block was based on one of my cut paper designs. It was cut from Speedball Speedy Stamp (Carve) using Speedball Linoleum Cutters.
I used a stamp I carved to make this paper quilt about me. The stamp was made for the carve it up challenge.
This bird was carved on a soft block with carving tools.
This is a print of the Three Continuous Flowers block so you could see how it connects on all sides, having the design flow from one print to the one next to it. I went over the design with pen and ink (in the center) so it is easier to see the connections. I hope…
These flowers were carved on a 4×4 inch soft block. The design continues on all four sides, so that if you keep printing the same block your design is connected to the ones next to it. I will upload another file so you can see it.
This design is based on sketches I made of a broken moon snail shell. I took one of my sketches, simplified it for a more graphic look and then rotated it a quarter turn. I decided to add a small snail shell design to the center of the block for interest. I've used this block…
The house was carved on soft block with a carving tool. The finished art was created with 6 reduction prints.
