Creating a Fabric Stamp - Continuation

Here is the link to the previous part 1 of 'Creating a Fabric Stamp';postID=7192110845395969510;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=6;src=postname

I've taken a few more photo's of the doily stamp/fabric stamp process.

Back of the block.
 Two holes for the handles have been drilled at the size of the screw from the front on the block.
The screw has been sunk into the back of the block.
 The screws were sunk into the back of the blocks so that when the rubber is mounted onto the underside, the screws will not get in the way of the stamp printing.
The right side of the block with screws showing proud.
  The handle is ready to screw into place once the stamp image has been transferred.

Here is the doily design on the tracing paper

 Start by designing your stamp so it is ready to trace and transfer onto your rubber.  Here I have used a doily design straight from a real crocheted doily.  I've taken the holes from the doily as the areas that I will cut away from the rubber.

Here is the rubber with the image transferred, it is now ready to carve.

I design my own stamps to sell and craft with, however if you have your own design that you would like turned into a stamp I can do that for you. I have many stamps done to order and there are portfolio's for you to view.
