So I thought to myself, what would be a good entry to do with paper?  I came up with "Into the Woods" as paper comes from trees - hence my forest theme.  What would a forest be without some pine trees, a bear and some mushrooms?  This was my first altered match box and stamp carving.  I have wanted to carve some stamps for so long so I doodled some on paper and then transferred them to the pink block, and here they are. Items used were scrap book paper, a bead, a matchbox, pink speedy carve, some ink, modge podge and acrylic paint.

A box of woodsy goodness all fit into an altered paper matchbox strait from the forest.

I did actually get the carving tools for this.  I really need to get a size 1 blade for the smaller carvings though

I love themed sets too!  The whole thing just came to me without having to put a lot of brain power out.  I just like woodsy things in general.
