Saturday Stamp Making

It is bunny season, with Easter right around the corner. So I decided to have some bunny inspiration and carve a rabbit stamp using a rubber block and linoleum cutting tools (all found at hobby lobby).

It started with a drawing.

Which I then redrew onto the rubber block with a sharpie.

Then I started carving away at the negative space.

Finally I stamped the rubber block into a little ink pad and pressed it onto paper!

Voila! Instant bunny stamp! Normally I would have drawn the original image as a mirror image so that the bunny would be facing the other direction, but this was a Saturday fun project so it was no big deal!

Have a lovely Saturday,
