DLP inspired by Michelle Ward

November theme: Stencils, Stamps & Masks
Weekly challenge: Use a hand-carved stamp
Journal Prompt: Tapestries

Here's my interpretation of this week's challenge.
I found a leaf in my notebook, nicely pressed from last year. I traced the leaf, made a reduced copy on the copier and then transferred the design onto an eraser. I used the Speedball Speedy-cut eraser carving block.
I carved the leaf design and tested my design by stamping samples. I like to leave small lines to show the hand carving lines. If you don't, you can cut those away.
Then I stamped my new stamp onto tissue paper coated with gesso and paint.

I allowed the ink to dry overnight so in the morning I could cut the leaf image into strips of paper.
Then I glued all the pieces back together matching up the stamped images over each other just like a quilt!
