Been carving some stamps lately with my BFF Dee! Starting to get slightly addicted...

Mika Stamp:

Mika and Mika!

Here is a super basic, bare bones, tutorial on how to carve a stamp:
 1. Draw your design on tracing paper

2.  Transfer your drawing to a rubber carving block by flipping it so the drawing side is against the rubber.  Burnish the back of the tracing paper with a spoon. The drawing will be stuck to the rubber really easily!
3. Carve around the drawing with a #1 speedball carving tip.
4. Use a larger speedball tip to clear area around edges.
4. Trim excess rubber.
5. Ink and Stamp!
