I created a stamp. I wanted something to represent sisters or friendship. I drew two girls without facial features leaning their heads towards each other. When I was happy with my drawing, I transferred it to my carving rubber. All you have to do is turn it over and rub it with a finger or bone folder.
Then I just carved out the areas. I knew this was an outline stamp, so I just carved everything. that wasn't drawn.
I stamped it a few times until I was happy with how it looked. My final stamping was done on a piece of book text that I had used to lift off some paint from a previous project. I think that the two combined make a great image! The message is evident!
Sister, Friendship, LOVE!
I also got my small 2x3 gelli plate and created a few backgrounds. My intention is to use them as envelopes. They will be combined with my stamp soon and turned into mail art.
Of course I had to draw on some of my backgrounds. I practiced a few faces with Neo color II. This one I liked a lot.
This one not so much. I wasn't happy with the hair. And it seemed too dark.
