Stars and Swaddles

I carved a star stamp today.  I’ve been wanting to try stamp carving and even had all the stuff, but I was scared to start.  I finally decided to give it a go with a simple star.

It was much easier than I thought.

I used the stamp to add interest to the plain white swaddling blanket I made our little baby boy.  I wanted the stars to be varied so I placed them randomly and then made sure some of them had less ink than others.  I like the effect.
