Half the fun with stamps is combining them with other stamps to make patterns and repeats. Although I still have the story stamp I made with some friends. Each of us got an eraser, and using all six sides, we had to carve stamps to tell a four panel story. Mine had to do with lightning, and a forest fire, and rain putting it out. I remember Lynne's better though - a princess lost her cats. It was funny, and the faces were all characteristically hers.
I also managed to break four needles tonight, and finish a small piece:
It will be 5x7" once it is cropped and the edges finished.
