Crusade No. 18



I decided to join the Green Pepper Press Street team this week by looking back and beginning the crusades from week one, spooky, halloween art. Fed up with my usual stamps I decided to carve some skullies. Oh how much fun is this! Allison was looking on all night, and finally asked if she could make one. Obviously I can't let a 6 year old carve erasers, but I had her draw on one and I carved it for her. Can you guess which one???



I received a book this week from my friend Ink-Pattie called Puro Muerto, Day of the Dead art and I decided to make some DOD skullies. Then I realized, carving stamps was Crusade #18, so here we are! I can see how addicting this could be, thank god I only bought one sheet of eraser today!! Excuse my inky fingerprints, I was obviously really excited to get these posted, all the ink schmeeeeeeerrd. Stay tuned for some ATCs with these this week. Please visit The GPP Street Team Crusade 18 and see what everyone else came up with.

Thanks for stopping by if this is your first visit here, and welcome back if you've been here before! Constructive criticism is always welcomed!

Luanne - great looking carvings! Happy to have you join the crusades by revisiting a favorite addiction. Bravo for making your own tools!! I'll be coming back to see what you do with them but they look terrific just in black and white.

Great carvings, Luanne! Allison's design is lovely. Dia de los muertos is such a cool holiday. I love the idea of celebrating someone's life, that they existed. I hated carving the erasers. When I was younger, block printing was one of my passions and I think I just like hard linoleum better than soft erasers!
