NEW HAND MADE STAMPS

Hand carved stamps I made for the Embellished Circus challenge. The fish themed stamps were inspired by the new childrens menu at SHARIS. Very strange inspiration! I never thought something like that would inspire me but it did. I really like working on the stamp blocks instead of the rubber erasers. Also using the stamp carving tools instead of the exacto knife makes a world of difference. The right tools for the right job! It's like magic.

These stamps rock! Great job. I love the textures and designs in the backgounds, too.

Jewelry work is my life. I have a new web site Jewelry. I do all the work myself by hand. Please check it out and let me know what you think of my Jewelry work. Thanks for letting me post on your blog.

oh my GAWD girl! These are just divine! You are such a great artist. I really like these a lot.

So. You are convincing me to invest in some stamp-carving tools, alrighty. I have a 40% off JoAnn's coupon...maybe one of the two stores around here sells something I'd like to buy...I'm still using exacto knives and erasers.

Great job Tam!!!
