Styrofoam is probably my favorite found material to recycle and make stamps with.
|A leaf was drawn onto a flat piece of styrofoam with a ball point ink pen.|
A stencil cutting tool was used to melt away the excess to reveal the design.
|A toilet paper roll makes a excellent marking tool.|
Stamps are actually MARKING TOOLS
|Here the motifs are defined with machine quilting.|
|Stamps with circles and lines|
|Cardboard makes fabulous textured lines.|
|I do combine manufacturer stamps with my original stamps occasionally.|
|The contrast of the proper date stamp against my hand work makes this stamp interesting.|
