Here's my initial drawing:
I then had to reverse it and transfer the image to a stamping block. I decided to use a linoleum block instead of rubber because it already had the wood backing attached and I didn't want to deal with gluing rubber to wood. Here it is all carved out... there's already some ink on it because I couldn't wait to try it out!
That's all the craftiness I've been up to this week... well actually, I'm still knitting a gift for some friends... they may read this so I don't want to post a picture until they receive the gift. I've been knitting or reading in the painfully slow carpool line this week at Taylor Anne's school. Here's what I'm reading: I wish I had read it maybe 10 years ago! Oh - wait - it was just published last year! Doh! I've been a fan of Barbara Kingsolver's for years... (The Bean Trees, Animal Dreams) how did I miss this one when it came out?
