Well, I carved my first stamp yesterday - a tiny vintage-style scooter!  I love scooters  Cool

The image size is a bit under 1" square.  I used part of a staedtler master carve block....and a lot of slow, mostly exacto knife cutting.  The lino cutting blades I had weren't quite small enough to get into the really small detail areas.

I'll probably use it to make some cards but have started making some mini domino art with it for now.  I was originally thinking a bracelet, but I now I'm considering making each 2 domino-pair a pendant set....

Here's the stamp and some shots of the domino WIPs:

I didn't know there was such a thing as 'domino art', but now I've seen one... Nice!  Grin Your scooter drawing is very simple (not in a negative way) and cute!

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

Thanks everyone --  I used to ride really big @ss motorcycles, but always coveted a cute, vintage vespa or lambretta  Wink

I didn't know about "domino art" until recently either  Grin  Thanks for the positive feedback on my drawing, too....I wanted to see how minimal I could make it and still have it be legible as a scooter, so I'm glad you think it worked.
