About Clip ArtClip art is freely available and there are literally thousands of designs ready for download. Designs with bold and simple outlines such as flowers and hearts are ideal for making into stamps. Before using clip art do check the terms of the clip art provider to ensure that they allow free usage of their designs. Our About.com guide to Clip Art has more information about downloading clip art and about clip art copyright.
