I'm linking up with Art Every Day Month throughout the month of November.
Creating art each day: doodling, painting, journal making, stamping, photographing, etc.
Some of you may remember that at the end of September I shared some art that I made using the vegetable okra as a stamp. I love flowers and okra makes the most beautiful flower when cut used to stamp. If you missed it you can see it here.
I made stamps out of the small flowers which you can see here but I hadn't made a stamp out of the large flower. Creating a more permanent way to duplicate the shape.
First using tracing paper trace the shape that you want.
Next, place the side with the pencil marks onto the Speedball carving rubber and rub so that the pencil transfers to the carving rubber. The start to carefully carve.
I like the way it turned out. Okra on the left and my new carved flower stamp is on the right.
Hmmm, I think I will enlarge the flower on a photocopy machine and create a larger stamp. The above stamp is only a little larger than an American quarter so I'm thinking I need one that is a couple of inches at least.
