Letterboxing Stamp

Back to carving -- this time a letterboxing stamp for my sister.  Thanx Lana Lambert of Pistoles Press for the chunk of EZ Cut to play with.

Here's the sketch of a baby elephant, with the initials JB:

 Here's carving it -- I thought lino was like butter, but this stuff is scary easy.

 And here's the little guy cleaned up (more or less).

Now I need to afix him to a chunk of wood for a handle.

I definitely want to play with this stamp medium some more, maybe for a personal chop for my woodcut prints.  ;-]
