Stamp Carving

One of the things I really enjoy is stamp carving. I've found it to be relaxing when I'm not feeling well enough to paint. I use them in the layers of my paintings. Sometimes they show through in the finished product, but oftentimes they don't. Here are a few paintings where my stamps do show through:

Here are some of the stamps I've carved over the last year or so.

I'm linking up with Paint Party Friday!
