Long lost stamp


Sorry I haven't posted I've been busy with the Ft Meade Shoe Box Swap, and getting ready to move. Hints how I found this.
Look what I found when cleaning out boxes in my shed.
I made this in a High School advanced art class.
I almost lost a finger when doing it but got it done!
We had to glue the linoleum (sp?) to the wood block and then carve the image out. I can't wait to try it out as a back ground stamp.

This is such a cool looking stamp! I can't wait to see what you create using it!! (Glad you were able to keep all your fingers!) Good luck with the move!
