....I make my own rubber stamps. If I love a pattern, a line, a bird, I know I am going to want to use it again. This is where stamping comes in handy. Design, cut, print, color. repeat and add more lines, textures, vegetation or just some plain silliness. I will make a mask (just cut out a piece of paper for the area I want to cover up) then stamp the other patterns right over the top. I must have 500 plus stamps I can work with to make bird images, a few Bird•Dogs and more.
