More Handcarved Stamps



Since the past two weeks, I've been wearing only jeans and t-shirt to office with absolutely nothing on my face. I spare no time for ironing my blouse and some of them are a bit tighter nowadays, so having less choice, I might repeat wearing a shirt just after it get dried on a hanger. Ironing is only for scarves and my husband's shirts. I carry my black jacket almost everyday, as it helps me to look a bit neater when necessary, rather than just looking like somebody going to market. I sacrifice the time for self-attention and sometimes spend too much on my artsy interest and stamp-making.
Above are some of my latest handcarved stamps.

hi ciyou!
i made a post about my tools! hope it helps!

hi antown!
hm...cara buatnya...tidak susah, yang penting ada pisau yang cukup tajam dan tangan juga harus "steady" bila memotong. sila lawat http://blogdelanine.blogspot.com/search/label/handcarvedstampstutorial

disitulah saya belajar mengukir pemadam! selamat mencuba antown!!

hi saharil!
saya sebenarnya mendapat inspirasi drpd "urusan seri paduka baginda yg dipertuan agung"...ya, urusan blogger2 juga tidak kurang penting kan? contohnya bila ada aktiviti swap.

Hi Milan... I got to salute you for being able to carve such beautiful stamps! You see I've been trying to carve some stamps... and because I am such a klutz I always end up carving my hands too hehe :P So I know how hard it is... that's why I want to salute you!
