Turn Your Face into a Stamp!

These portrait stamps by Lise Grossman have us swooning. Have you seen them? She takes a photo of someone (or a couple), creates a hand sketch of the photo, transfers it to rubber and then carves it into a stamp. The final result is adorable and amazing. (And comes with a tiny heart stamp!) It’s so impressive how with simple, blocky lines, Lise is able to capture little characteristics of each face to make them truly recognizable. See the process shots (and original photos) from a few couples in the slideshow after the jump.
