Timing

I start my morning by carving a new comissioned stamp. I want to practice "timing" the whole carving process. This one takes 1 hour and a half to finish...and about 2 hours including the tracing process.



And here's the proof of the stamps that I showed earlier.

<3 Lovely! I like all the stamps. Oh, and the fonts you always use on the letters. They're nice and chunky and very stamp-friendly. =D

Pattern criss-cross kat oven mitts tu best tgk. Coz the lines are SO neat. =D

giannigoh,

These are just ordinary erasers, gianni. You can find them at any stationary shop.

Edi,

Thank you! Anytime when you are ready dear!

Bethany,

I don't know how I make them! Haha! I often got lost in the middle of carving.

I believe anyone can do it Beth, it just take lots of patience.

Giannigoh,

Don't worry. I'm sure someday you will find it.

I keep my eyes on erasers anywhere I go...I bought them bit by bit. Before I find the large one I also use the small one, it is more challenging, as I need to scale down my design according to the available size. Size doesn't limit creativity!

Maya,

Thanks so much for trusting me to carve your design dear! It might not be perfect, but I'm glad you like it!
