Hello fellow stampers and stamp makers! I thought it was about time to start posting some of my stamping adventures.

Here's a stamp I carved about a month ago. It's the Little Prince from the book by Antoine De Saint Exupery.

I traced the Prince from a large illustration onto tracing paper with pencil, then rubbed it onto the pink stamp carving rubber and went at it! It took awhile and a lot of breath holding to do the finer details such as his eyes, but I managed to get a very accurate stamp as a result.
I let my mum use it and she was so happy, as she loves le petit prince more than I do if that's possible!

Here's the stamp in action. I colored it using my trusty pencil crayons, trying to emulate the book illustration colors as best as possible. Although since it's just the outlines I can make the prince wear anything I can think of! Cheesy

Here's a reference image of the actual book illustration:
And here's the inside of the card (the rose stamp is one from a Stampin Up set):

I'll be posting some more of my stamps later on, but for now this is the best and most detailed one I've made. I have plans to carve up other stamps from le petit prince and make a set!

You did amazing!  The stamp is what, a couple inches?

The stamp is about 2 3/4 inches tall and 3/4 inch wide. Pretty much thumb sized!

that is a very sweet stamp.. I read that book to my daughter this year..  I cried at the end..  it such a sweet sad story...
I love your  planet for him  I can see him jumping off it and checking out the other planets  in the back ground..  your rose looks so lonely...as well...
your card conveys much meaning.. I hope that the prince and his rose get together soon...
