I'm linking up with Julia over at Stamping Ground for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW).
Over the weekend I posted about creating a flower pattern using okra. If you missed it go here.
I was so inspired with the flowers that I have decided to create my own stamps using the image that was created.
I took tracing paper and and traced the smallest flower image, I like a challenge.
Lay the tracing paper on the rubber sheet (it's like an eraser but specifically made for making your own stamps and is softer so it is easier to carve) and rub so that the image comes off. If I wasn't copying an image I would have just drawn directly on the rubber to create my image.
Then you carefully carve away what you don't want to be stamped. I knew that I wanted 3 different versions of the flower. Full petal, outlined petal empty inside, and outlined petal with imprint inside. Thus, I carved 3 different versions.
The stamps create these images (below).

To work with them, because they are so small, a little easier I am going to glue to them to the end of corks.
Next up, creating even more flower stamps from the other images making larger custom flower stamps.
What have you created lately?
Hop on over to Stamping Ground and check out the other artists this week.
