Simple Heart Stamp Tutorial

I made this simple tag using the distress tag technique from last week (found here) using inks in red and pink shades. I then made a simple stamp using a pencil eraser to be able to repeatedly stamp a small heart on the tag. Here is a quick tutorial:
1. Supplies needed: pen, craft knife, sanding tool, pencil with eraser. 2. Cut the tip of the eraser off to start with a flat surface. 3. Draw a heart on the tip of the eraser. 4. Carve away the eraser leaving the heart. 5. Sand down any rough edges. 6. Dip in ink and stamp away!
