Another of my own stamp designs!!

I've done it again...got another of my own li'l designs made up into a stamp. I have quite a few drawings that I have scanned ready for making into stamps. However, I very nearly didn't bother with this one as I didn't think it was one of my best. I'm so glad I did though as it turned out far better than I could ever have imagined.

OK...are you ready...can I have another drum roll please...

Ta-Dah!!

Here is the acetate sheet that came with the stamps. The manufacturer managed to fit 2 stamps onto the one sheet in slightly different sizes.

And here is the design in 3 different colourways. The size of the stamp is exactly what I wanted...the largest stamp measures approx 13cm x 7cm. I love big impact stamps that make a statement on their own. I hope that's what I've achieved.

First up, here it is stamped in turquiose...

...and then lime green...

...and finally a deep pink.

When I look at the end result I do feel an enormous sense of achievement. If you have had any thoughts about doing your own stamp designing I urge you to take the plunge. There is nothing quite like seeing your own artwork as a stamp.

I still have no plans to sell my stamps, they are just for my own pleasure for the time being, but I hope you enjoy looking at my creations anyway.

Sarita, I love the new stamp you designed! If you´ll ever start selling them I´ll be right here with a big shopping cart, heehee. What I love most is the thing that you don´t need anything but some text with your beautiful stamps and you are done. It´s CAS in absolut elegant perfection. Sigh, love your style!

I am so impressed with your design and also that you had it made into a stamp. I think I might seriously think about doing that myself. Where did you have your stamp made?

The cards look fabulous.

cbuswell said...

Hi, I did send you a quick e-mail the other day, not sure if you got it though, I was hoping you could let me know the name of the company where you had your stamps made up. I'd love to make a few for personal use. Thanks!

Paula Gale said...

Sarita - these are totally wicked - I cannot believe you aren't going to start selling these. DOn't you think thats how people like Sheena Douglas and Barbara Grey started - with an idea - and people wanted it. I recon that enough people want this - and if they used it on their blogs - if you had a design team or something you'd soon be getting your name about.. please reconsider whether you will sell them because I would certainly buy them - and you seem to have a lot of support here.

hugs

Andrea said...
