I recently completed carving this stamp for my partner in the Woodland themed Swap.  She is a fan of the show "Twin Peaks" and I couldn't resist because it fit the theme so well. 

Here is the stamp up close:

It's been a while since I've had to carve anything, but the speedball pink block is super easy to carve so I was able to complete this one in a day. Regardless of the ease, I've always found that typography is a difficult and delicate process.  Especially since you have to work with backwards words. Smiley

I made her a set of notecards with the stamp and gifted her the carving as well since I won't use it. I did, however, keep a test print or two for myself. Wink

Thanks for looking!! Smiley

This is absolutely amazing!

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

You carved that so well!  It makes such a "clean" stamp!

Wow nice! Typography is already hard forwards, let alone backwards - you did such a good job with it.
