Thanks, ladies!

I can't believe this is your first carving! Great design, great execution. And how clever of you to use the backing from an existing stamp!

I looked at many, many pins of bookplates and wood-and lino cuts before putting together the design which took a lot of trial and error in Photoshop before I was happy. I am glad I did! And then I just went reallllly slow on carving to help diminish mistakes and bad choices give me time to have a steady learning curve. I also bought extra materials!
