Playing with Layers and Patterns

I should not be left alone with an eraser and a craft knife when I am bored, because something like this will definitely happen:

paisley pattern stamp

hand-carved paisley pattern stamp

I carved the paisley pattern stamp and its layer stamp while waiting for my husband to finish work.

coloring the paisley pattern

You can use stamp pads, color markers, or water-color to fill in the pattern.

Which coloring technique looks best to you? Drop me a line and let me know! 🙂
