Making stamps

My finger is on the mend and I'm officially back to work, I'm still slow moving but I'm at least moving.
For the past 2 days I've been tinkering with making stamps, I think I've turned out about 30 of them. Here's a peek...

This is a good sit in front of the TV or talk on the phone task and considering I've been held captive on the phone for the past few days it's all worked out pretty good.
Of course most people that work with clay are semi hoarderish when it comes to having textures and various tools, because you never know when you may be able to re-purpose something.  That being said I'll admit that I have a whole plethora  of shit cool stuff on hand that I can use, however I end up falling back on a few tools that just seem to do the trick. This is the small arsenal that I pulled out for this round. 
And which are my favorite tools to use? Well I'll tell ya, better yet I'll show ya.
These 2 items PLUS the nail are by far the best stamp making tools I've ever used. Pictured are one of my wooden skewers and my granny's walnut picken tool (omg that sounded pretty redneck, yep... that thar's my granny's nut picker) You know back in the day when my granny was alive she always had this tray that sat on her table with nuts, there were 2 nut picks and a nut cracker and yes I'm the new nut that has them, she'd probably have a cow if she knew what I was doing with her nut picker.

And to catch you up on where the owl landed from my last post, he landed here...
