ABC Wednesday - W and WOYWW
This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter W is our focus.
W is for waves and WOYWW (the fun challenge - What's on Your Work Space Wednesday)
Here is the art tag and stamp I carved (inspired by a stamp carved by Jessica of Enchanting Stamps -She is a very talented stamp carver).
Be sure to check here for what others around the world did for W this week.
Each week Julia Dunnit at Stamping Grounds hosts WOYWW - where we are encouraged to share our work spaces and the work we are working on.
I thought I'd share some of the steps (and my work space as well) for creating the stamp above.
First, I draw my design, turn it upside down on the carving block and rub the back to get the carbon on the block.
Next, I begin to carve around the design, and then go around again to make it easier to cut around the excess with an exacto knife.
I check it then for areas missed, by inking it and stamping in my book. If needed I will trim excess and then restamp to check it.
Finally, I create an art tag with the new stamp.
