Hi all! I've been hanging around this wonderful site for months now but finally got up the nerve to post. I started carving stamps a few months ago and have really enjoyed watching my skills improve with each one. Every new one I carve is my favorite and I think I couldn't possible love one more until I carve the next one and then I change my mind Smiley But this one is truly my favorite, it's a composite of 2 Kurt Halsey images that I put together to represent my cat and I. Without further ado, here it is!



And for scale:



It's carved on Grade A PZKut (which = sweet sweet carving love) and a Staedtler #1 gauge carving tool. I hope you like it because I have tons more I can post!

Squeee! So cute! You're good at that; stamp carving intimidates me.

I love love love it and would love to see more! I really want to try stamp carving but the materials seem to be a bit pricey here. This one makes me miss my kitty  Cry.

Lol, and I love seeing coins as a scale reference. I have no idea how big this is cause I live in Australia and have never played with american coins  Cheesy. Silly me

My DH is looking over my shoulder. He said, "that's beautiful."
I was thinking how precious the image is, and amazed at how small. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure we'd all love to see your previous loves! Grin
