I Found the Perfect Rubber Stamp Storage Idea!    Sunday, July 8, 2018


Above is one of the artworks I created using a hand carved stamp as a starting point!  I used a few steps to make it:

  1. The woven container is a stamp that I carved as part of a series of interesting orb shapes.  I printed it in black stamp pad ink on to white paper. 
  2. The tree is painted with black ink using a small thin paintbrush. Here is a video of a similar one I painted and shared on Instagram.
  3. The colours on the container, leaves, flowers, and table surface are all drawn with cheap felt pens. 
  4. The colours in the background are added digitally with a drawing tablet in Photoshop!

I have accumulated quite a collection of hand carved stamps (some are which are available for order in my shop, and some of my personal designs which I like to use to make my artwork look unique).  When I am looking for just the right one to use in my art journal or craft project, it has become like looking for a needle in a haystack!

All About Hand Carved Stamps.    Friday, March 23, 2018

Here is all the information you need to know about hand carved stamps made by Miraculous Mosuito.

All stamps are carefully hand carved in professional quality rubber, and tested thoroughly first before being sent to the customer. Hand Carved stamps have a more unique and interesting quality than mass produced ones, as no two stamps are ever exactly the same. 

New Gift Card Option For Orders!    Friday, March 23, 2018

Now you can include a small personalised hand made card for gifts!

When you order items (other than downloads) I have included the option of purchasing a small hand made gift card for an extra $3.50, which is useful if you would like to send a gift straight to a special person.  Each card is hand printed using a different stamp design, and then hand coloured by me! It will be in a cute hand made origami envelope.
The card will have a simple message inside, which I will write by hand in nice lettering:

"Which Stamp Thickness Should I Choose?"    Thursday, March 22, 2018

When you purchase one of my hand carved stamps, you will be given the option of choosing which thickness of rubber that I carve your stamp from.  Both options do not require any cost:

  • THIN:  If you choose the THIN OPTION I will carve your stamp from thinner rubber that can range from 5-10mm in thickness.
