I posted a tutorial for how I go about carving these things here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205507.msg2193799#msg2193799

aaaaand - here's my latest venture!

Pandas are a near perfect subject for a one-color project becuase the white can be represented by negative space. I was very pleased with the way the fur-face turned out and I put a border in place to counter the fact that I was doing more of a panda portrait than a whole panda.

I love pandas!  Grin

My sister and I are sharing a birthday party tomorrow, so I'm including a package of these in her present. Hope she likes them!



Here's the stamp I carved:



And here's the whole project, drying on newsprint:

Very nice! Eyes can be so tricky (mine usually end up wonky and make the subject look like they're looking in two different directions). Well done, and thanks again for the tutorial. Smiley
