As promised, here is a tutorial for creating and using your own fabric stamp. Don't forget, you can win on of these bags by entering the giveaway I posted yesterday!
Start with an eraser. I found a three pack at the dollar store. I chose to cut the stamp in half since I was making a smaller stamp.
Sketch out your design with a pencil. I traced an owl charm on mine. I kept it fairly basic so that it would be easy to carve.
Using whatever knife or carving tools you have, start cutting away at the eraser. I found it easy to slice down around the design and then into the side of the eraser.
Continue working until you have cut out the whole design. Now start stamping! Do a few practice ones on paper to start. I chose to stamp on some fabric bags I had on hand but it was challenging to stamp on the uneven surface.
You can leave it like that or do what I did next and trace around your design. I wanted to add details and let the whole piece pop a bit more.
I created these pieces in red and turquoise as part of a Blogging Business Artisans challenge. Each month, we are challenged to create something along a theme and this month was based on the colors red and turquoise. See more challenge pieces here.
