It's crusade time again - you know how much I love Michelle Ward's GPP Street Team Crusades - This month's crusade is Cut It Out - Make a tool of your own. Michelle is challenging us to create our own tools either carving our own rubber stamps or creating a custom stencil. Now I haven't created a stencil before, so I'm looking forward to Michelle's hints and tips


I have tried creating my own stamps and lino prints before, here are some pics:


Raven

Triskele or Celtic Spiral

Phoenix rising from the flames.

Thanks to Michelle for the great ideas, I'm inspired to hunt out my tools and carve some stamps.

I enjoyed looking at your blog and I love your stamps! Seeing yours made me realize that the carving lines in the background of the design is a design it'self isn't it ...

Have a great hair day! Becci
