A new stamp

I cut this stamp of my brother, since I already did one of me. The lower image is a photo I cropped out of a shot, and converted it to black and white, then in PhotoShop converted it to rubber stamp. i resized it to the size of my eraser, and printed it. I used a regular lead pencil to make lines on the parts I wanted to transfer to rubber eraser. Its a simple way to transfer the image - just place it pencil side down on eraser and rub with back of fingernail or something smooth. It transfers immediately.

One thing about making your own stamps is remembering to reverse the images to get the stamp facing the direction you want it to. It takes practice. Trial and error. Lots of them. LOL
