Hand stamped stationery

Stamped Stationery
Here's something fun to make with hand carved stamps...personalized stationary!
Any type of paper will do. I used a really nice speckled banana fiber paper stationery writing set that I got at my local organic produce store and embellished it with my own carved rubber stamps.

What brand is the fountain pen? I want it! My favorite is the one with the ship and feather, it's lovely - the detail on those stamps.....I saw the video of you making it and I don't think I could do it. You are so talented!! If ever you decide to sell those two stamps, let me know!!

It is always nice to receive snail mail and especially nice if the sender has taken the time to make the stationary. Beautiful as always.

I love them! Such clean, crisp images! How do you get such even images with your hand-carved stamps? What inks do you use?
