Step One:

Draw out your pattern onto the rubber block using a pencil. Keep it simple! I went for triangles and mini rectangles.

Step Two:

Start Carving, use small strokes to carefully take away the rubber that surrounds your pattern, leaving it in relief. Be sure to take enough away so that your print is neat.

Step Three:

Using pigment ink, cover your stamp in ink. Then carefully place it down onto the material, give it a light push to ensure all of the ink is transferred. Repeat to create a pattern.

Step Four:

One dry, seal in the ink with a hot iron to make it last. This should mean you are able to wash your pencil case with minimal fading.

Pop in some stationery and you are good to go!
