New challenge : carving stamps

After seeing the wonderful stamps made by my friend Miss Thundercat, I wanted to give the whole stamp carving thing a try.
After all, I bought a stamp carving kit from Traci Bunker's Etsy shop last year, complete with cutters, carving blocks and tutorial, but never got round to actually use them.

This happy go lucky character is the third stamp I made. The previous two can be found on my flickr but I'm not happy with them. On the other hand, I would have been a natural talent if I has succeeded on first try, which obviously I am not :o)

Carving stamps is really addictive and once I buy some new carving material I see myself making other stamps. I'll keep you posted.

    Aw, thank you both. :o)

    PS. I think I need to tweak my settings, because I wasn't notified of your comments and only saw them because I was testing the link in my latest bento post.
