Below is a very short clip of the initial carving of this stamp. I was mulling over where to start easier and let out a heavy sigh.. not a good way to do it.
I had to take a break after that last cut. I've always had problems carving tiny faces with details. Despite what you see, its not always an easy thing to carve a stamp.. but I still do it :) because... its faster than ribbon embroidery (the other craft I dwell in).
