Here is the update from my blog post last week ‘Christmas Card words’. I had some really helpful feedback, both on this blog and also my Facebook page which I really do appreciate. I decided to keep most of the words the same but changing the last line from ‘happiness ever after’ to ‘memories ever after’, I felt it fitted better.
I decided to carve out a rubber stamp with these words on it to print onto card. This was a harder job than I first anticipated and I could have done with a larger piece of rubber to carve because it got a little bit tight with the letters and made it very fiddly to carve with the basic equipment I own.
I managed to get it all done and didn’t stab myself once, just my silly tennis elbow that caused me grief!
I am actually quite happy with how it turned out, it’s not perfect but I kind of like it like that! I am a mere beginner, so for me, I am very pleased that it worked out okay, it was a very experimental project.
I took the stamped image into Photoshop and edited it to clean it up and change the colours and the spacing a little.
I am really getting a love for carving and have a bunch of ideas that I want to explore in the New Year! For now though, I have got a very urgent request from my 7 year old, a Christmas tree with a star on top, she has drawn it how she wants it to look so I must get that one done soon!
