You just got a new stamp set. If you bought wood-mount, you mounted them and if you bought clear-mount, you’ve removed the paper. So what do you do with the leftover rubber? How about a handmade mosaic stamp?! Cut up the pieces of rubber into random shapes and glue them unto a wood block for a permanent stamp or simply place your clear-mount rubber on a clear block which you can keep as is or recreate. Make sure to adhere the pieces close to each other with minimal gaps. Here I created a bookmark using my own handmade mosaic stamp. I stamped the bookmark twice since my stamp was smaller than the bookmark. I then used the embossing resist method to make sure all the gaps were filled in with color. Can you tell where I missed a spot? With this technique, it really doesn’t matter – I love the look of my brand new stamp. So don’t throw away your rubber scraps and get ready to create your own masterpieces!
