I've really been growing as a stamp carver and it's finally starting to show. I think I need to invest in a magnifier soon though because my eyes are starting to feel the affects! I carved this little fairy from an image drawn by Elizabeth O. Dulemba (I really like her artwork) out of Grade A PZKut with a Staedtler #1 gouge and a Speedball #5 gouge. I need to start dabbling in needle carving though because I'm starting to outgrow my carving tools. Anyway, enough talk, onto the stamp!

Here she is next to a pen for scale:



And all by herself:



And stamped (with a little chalk for detail).


Hope you like her because I LOVE her Smiley

I hit This Rocks right away.  This is amazing.  I love her too.  I don't carve, but I can tell this took TALENT and patiences.  I know what you mean about your eyes feeling it though...my FIL is an optician and has been warning me about my small work... 

Great job...love love love it.

That is so unbelievable awesome! I still can't quite believe that you actually carved those words. So amazing.

I keep coming back to admire this! It is definitely the most fabulous hand-carved stamp I have ever seen. It's so cleanly carved, I am in awe! And, when I think about how small it is, I'm just blown away...

I don't usually gush like this over projects, but if I could hit This Rocks a hundred times, I totally would!

really beautiful detail.. i've tried my hand at carving a few times and i always have a "slip" and mess up something and end up having to alter the design (just not patient enough to go slower, most likely)..

bravo
