Shroomies

Another print I made; this time a mushroom. I have to say, that I love these pink Speedy Stamp blocks from Speedball . They carve like butter, and it is so easy to transfer your drawing from paper to the block. You can even draw right onto the block and then "erase" if you need to with a Q-Tip soaked in nail polish remover. Carving these blocks is so satisfying, and seeing the end result is even more so. Shown here are the actual carved block and also the finished print. I'm really happy with how these came out, and I'm thinking about matting a series of three of them, all with their caps colored in a different color.

You've done a wonderful job with this. I've always meant to do some stamp carving. One of those things on my rather long list things I wanna do! I need to get some of those Speedy Stamp blocks. Thanks for the tip!
