Distelfink stamp created from my drawing.

A distelfink is a bird used in Pennsylvania German folk art.  I'm really happy with how well the print came out. Especially since this is only my second carving.


My drawing, the stamp, and the print all together. As you can see I altered things from the original just a wee bit. Maybe I can get those tiny open circles when I'm a bit more skilled.

It's beautiful-didn't know that was the name of the bird.

Great Job!   Grin
