AEDM (Day 7) - Carving a Hexagon stamp


 Have you noticed the preponderance of hexagons in crafting these days?  I wanted a hexagon stamp and decided to make my own.
 I used the hexagon shape below in my Photoshop Elements program to size and then space out the shapes to make a row of them suitable for carving.
 When you don't have curved lines or fancy details the carving goes lickety-split!!
 A bit of double-sided tape to adheres the stamp securely to the acrylic block.
Put together a quick card with a retired sentiment from A Muse and a bit of smash tape.  This stamp will be great to use in my art journals!
