an owl is born

I made my own rubber stamps! None too soon either 'cause good stamps are spendy. I got lucky and found a small starter kit on sale for 9 bucks at Michaels -- a couple of speedball cutters and a block of that pink erasure-like stuff. Oh the fun and satisfaction...

I transfered an image onto the pink stuff
(technically called Speedy Stamp Block)

carefully cut around the owl, then gave him eyes, nose, and talons

Ta-da -- my very first stamp! He needs a branch...

I felt confident enough in my branch-drawing abilities that I didn't bother transferring an image

And voila -- my second-ever stamp!

I know what you're thinking... Nice hooters!
