Just in time for V-day.
I love stamps and I love pixel art. So my foray into stamp-making has been with an eye to showcase my pixel skills. I also love to think outside of the box and that has led me to design a few stamp borders which are a bit different than the original offerings. Of course, the biggest challenge is to create a scalloped border which looks like a stamp, yet utilizes a unique design. That was my goal when I decided to make a couple of stamps for Valentine's Day[link]
. It took me quite a while to get the design and spacing down, but I'm very happy with it. My hopes is that others will be able to use the bases for their own creations. I should note that the heart edges are deliberately flat-colored, as shading them took away from their stamp look.
*** Pack includes 4 templates. One for regular sized stamps (99x56) and one sized for PLZ stamps (99x100). One set features a small pixel striped background of my creation (you can find more color options in this pack [link]
) . The templates are in .png format, so they can be used by pretty-much everyone. Also comes with a readme and a copy of the graphic above displaying all of the stamp options. ***Note: I'm making more formal rules for use of my bases, so please read them. Even so, I try to be flexible, so if you have a question or special situation, let me know.
Rules of Use.
You may use this template freely. These bases are released under a CC license, which means you can change them to meet your needs. So, yes, you can lighten or darken them, change the colors, shade them, tweak the pixels, whatever. Just don't claim them as your own.
If you use this template for a dA stamp, please credit me. If you use the stamps offsite, a linkback to my profile page is not necessary, but it would be nice.
You MAY post this template as stock on another website, but you must give credit and the file name must remain in-tact. I don't mind you sharing this resource--that's what I made it for! I just don't want others claiming my work as their own, so please keep the credit info there.
If you make a stamp from this base, please let me know. I'll add it to my special collection, and I periodically feature deviants/pieces made with my bases.
That's it! Have fun!
