You all know I LOVE custom order stamps!! :-) I love carving them... love the images.
I was given the challenge to carve 3 flowers, no stems, no leaves, just the bloom. I needed to carve a hibiscus, and African lily, and an African violet. I looked through some images on google to see what these flowers looked like, then I drew a few sketches. I was confident about the hibiscus and the lily, but the violet... well, I was just not sure how I was going to make it into a stamp. The first one I carved ended up in the little bag next to my desk.... the trash bag :-( I tried to add too much detail to that one and it just did not work... but the second carve was a success!! :-)
Here they are...
I love comments.... let me know what you think :-)
