my attempt at hand carving a stamp
not perfect but I like it for the first try. Next time I need to be more careful with carving those closely positioned lines.
p.s. I finally broke down and tried hand carving a stamp after seeing this video. It's the easiest to follow, clearest visual for hand carving a stamp that I've come across. Now I'm hooked. And I thought I'd never get to use my linoleum cutter, ha!
