A few blog posts ago I shared my cupcake stamp that I had carved from a rather soft piece of linoleum. While it was nice to carve into, it was kind of crumbly. So I scoured the web for a sturdier block. I read that a certain kind of rubber eraser also works well for carving into stamps and Peaseblossomstudio also suggested it to me, so I tried it out this weekend.
Everything comes with a lesson I suppose. And when it comes to rubber stamp carving, next time I'll make sure to flip the image before I carve it!
What's pitiful is I didn't realize until I tried out the stamp that the image would stamp backwards. dummy.
But I definately plan on buying more erasers. It was fun and fast!
