Hand-carved Stamps

Day 6: Hand-carved stamps!! Yippee :)
I can see me carving more of these stamps in the future! Maybe even some jumbo-sized ones???

These were so fun to make but really stressful on my neck...does anyone have tips on how to prevent crooks/spasms in the neck while carving? Thanks in advance ;)

...I'm lovin' this hypnotizing pattern...
Tip: always clean off your stamps! Don't let paint dry on them...I like to use a baby wipe to get the job done, when I can't run to sink to rinse them off.
