WOYWW Roses to inspire me...

before I start to carve my stamp for an
Advent-Mail-Art-Adventure - postcard swap.

We are supposed to create a stamp with a repeating pattern...
Have to make a first sample.
{ drumroll please }
YES! Eureka! It works!!!


I always love to hop over to Julia's place every once in a while to see what's happening on other creative desktops. A wonderful place to be on Wednesday!

Happy stamp carving!
Happy WOYWW!


Hugs,

  3. Firstly, those roses are gorgeous! And well done on creating that repeating pattern, it's really clever! One of things where the idea seems simple but getting it to work is tricky. Clever you!

  5. That stamp you have carved is beautiful! I once tried carving stamps and did not like what I did - I gave up in the end never to try again. Glad someone gets good results.

  6. Loving your roses and all those vintage objects on your desk! Creating a stamp with a repeating pattern is quite a challenge! I could probably only do something very simple, like squares, LOL! Yours is very intricate! The Advent Mail Art Adventure swap sounds like fun! Enjoy your week! zsuzsa #22

    1. I must admit that this is the second stamp that I've ever carved. I was a bit overwhelmed at the beginning, because it is supposed to be a repeating pattern. But I was just of happy to see that it really does look good!! LOL ♥
