Stamp carving goes with art journaling like paint with brushes. It isn't a difficult job: a spot of practice, the right tips and tools and you have a personal stamp with a distinctive look. I've used the leaf image from the cover of the Flow journal and copied it.*
It's fun to come up with your own little drawings for stamp carving. Look through motifs from rugs or wallpapers. I like to look at ancient and African symbols too. If you want to carve letters or words, make sure that they are reversed when carving!
*I've used imagery from one of Flow's designers so it's not my imagery. I cannot sell it or use it on any piece of my artwork that is for sale. This is very important: please respect your source.
