Plant a seed and watch it grow...

Hello there,

While making a stamp every day in December, I had this idea for a tree stamp...

Sketched up a few examples,

rough sketches

Picked my favorite, transferred the design to a piece of speedy carve and started carving.  Did some test stamping until it looked good to me :-)

I still love the original sketch but couldn't work out how to do the hollow, maybe next time.

The best part of stamp carving is getting to use your one-of-a-kind stamp!

finishing touches make all the difference

Amidst a backdrop of shiver inducing snow, this happy little creation cheers my spirits tree-mendously.

Sending warming thoughts and creative vibes your way today and everyday.
