Carving rubber stamps

I've spent twelve hours in the past two days hunched over my desk carving rubber stamps. I am having so much fun.

In a few weeks I'm teaching a workshop about making stamps and needed to have some to display. The old stamps I carved were ok but I wasn't particularly interested in the imagery anymore so I decided to make some fresh ones to show the students. I'd forgotten that cutting into a piece of buttery soft rubber with a nice sharp knife is pure pleasure.

Now I need to find what to print on!
