Songbird stamp

Here's little Songbird (4x4 inches)
in a different medium.
This time I hand carved him into a stamp.
I used a Staedtler Mastercarve carving block
& my Speedball linoleum cutters.
There is a great tutorial online
on how to carve your own stamps right here, if you're interested.
You can also take a look at my growing collection of hand carved stamps

i will probably do this with the boys this winter .. we always carved rubber erasers at school -- not as nice a final product! i think they're old enough to handle the sharp cutting tool. (for carving erasers, we used pencils with their erasers popped out, and the metal bent slightly.)

i love using stamps to embellish letters, and writing letters is an important part of our homeschooling day! :^)
