Creating Lino Stamps

Hi everyone!

I feel a tidbit guilty about putting my manuscripts in the drawer. They needed a rest anyway. When the time comes, I’ll pull them out.

I’m into stamps, and I love them. I’ve been attending a few illustration classes that have inspired me to create new art.

I’ll share my sketches for the stamps and the results obtained after carving them out for this post.

I used both linoleum and speedy carve.

Under the Sea

Once I carve them out, I ink them and notice any imperfections that need attention.

Are you into stamps? Tell me about it in the comments.

Take care and stay safe.

Here’s a link to my personal FB account if you prefer to comment there.

When I was a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods followed by my six cats and two dogs.

  1. Wonderful! I LOVE stamps! But I’ve never made my own. I’d like to hop on a plane and come over to have you show me how. 🙂
