I inquired at a local art store about teaching a class. I noticed they don't offer an ATC class, but do sell a variety of blank ATCs. One rule though is that in your class you cannot use materials not sold at the store.
I use a lot of stamps in my work, because I struggle with drawing. And they do not sell stamps, but they do sell stamp making materials.
And here I am giving my hand a try at carving my own stamps. I used a linocut first, we had an old one sitting around the house. I cut it down to smaller sizes, and made my first two stamps.
The linocut doesn't take stamp ink, but I did have screenprinting ink laying around.
I present you, blackbird.
And these flowers were inspired by my stitched cards.
