Willing to personal swap for art of my doggies!

This was what I made for Wulf for the winter book swap that was just run.

I hand carved it from thin stamping making material and it should fit nicely inside a standard paperback - about 3x4"? 

Then I felt that just the stamp was not enough, so I added some bookplates made from it, which I added adhesive backing to, and inked and added some hand colouring to.


I am pretty happy how they both turned out.  A bit more about the stamp here, on my blog, and a bit more here, about the bookplates, with some more pics.

WOW! What an amazing swap piece! I am a total sucker for bookplates and their stamps and this one is no exception. I have on my TBM list making one for me, after having made a couple for gifts.

Thank you - I hope he does too.  I realized after I made these that what I was crafting was ultimately my happy place - a cozy place to while the night away reading - all that is missing is the cup of tea, a smouldering fireplace, and the sleeping dog at my feet (though I am not in the chair, so really, the dog would have stolen my seat, book or no book).

Actually - not that long.  Once I get into them, I quite like carving stamps and like to try to finish them in one session.  I think it maybe took me 3-4 hours?  That would include some finicky stamping and adjusting.
