Setting up my lovely collection of carving tools and carving blocks, fellow crafter Trudi, also decided to do some carving. She is far more experienced than I, so I was very grateful that Trudi shared her skills and wisdom into the world of carving. I must say, it's harder than it looks! But very therapeutic at the same time.
Well that first time carving was a few weeks ago. So I thought I would tackle it again.
In the above picture you can see a heart and a handbag at the top left. They were my stamps from the craft day. This time I carved a traditional comic speaking bubble and a dress. A little better this time.
I'm still trying to get the technique right to make sharp lines. I guess as they say, 'practice makes perfect'.
