Salut Stefanie

S t a m p i n g A w a y

I've been drawing and painting since I was a kid and have tried lots of painting and printing  techniques. I love to mix different styles, techniques and materials.
So when I discovered how to make stamps simply out of erasers I couldn't wait to start.
First I had to buy some lino cutters and found out that Hema & Action stores in Holland sell perfectly cheap erasers!

The only rule in making stamps is to j u s t  d o  i t  & d o n ' t  t h i n k  t o o  m u c h !
If you mess up with the carving, just start over again...
Faces are quite difficult, particularly the eyes. Sometimes I leave the eyes out, and make them seperately.
Fun part of making stamps is that you can use the S t a m p S for lots of things...
Cards, label tags, note books, rompers, wrapping paper, sheets, clothing...

The girl in the logo is also one of my stamp creations...she actually is not alone, I had made a 'French couple' and thought that Salut was a perfect word for them...
My latest action was pimping a pair lovely chino pants for my little AnnA with a star stamp.
