Rubber Carving and Doodling Tutorial
The thing I love about carving rubber is that even when you carve popular images and shapes, no one will have the exact same stamp as yours, because each piece of handcarved rubber has its own unique characteristics.
Like the single raindrop. I love the shape. And my carved raindrop is something I use all the time.
You can do so much with it ... like rows and rows of red drops all pointed in one direction.
Or three columns of black drops with some pointing up and some pointing down to create a different pattern.
And then clusters of brown drops that look like flowers.
Add some doodling and they are over-the-top fabulous.
Same thing with the popular hexagon shape. Such a popular shape these days, right? So carve yourself one, two, or three in sizes small to large and you can make these shapes your very own.
Experiment with them and see what they can do!
And as always ... add doodling to bring them to life.
The details of carving rubber are explained thoroughly in my new book, Stamp It!, which is availalbe here. Happy carving, stamping, and doodling. :)
