very sweet! i just carved some of the rubbery linoleum block a few
weeks ago. i thought i was going
to cut a finger off! when i was little. my dad created a xmas tradition of designing a card. we would sit and carve old block and then take turns rolling on the ink
and pressing to paper. a few years ago, he gave me the old blocks and tools. it is one of my most precious gifts.

happy wednesday!

Great job! I like these a lot, but I really love that little bird! Watch out, because eraser carving can easily turn into an addiction!

Erasers? Amazing!
I would have been fumbling around with wood and would have, cut my finger off.

Great one!

They turned out wonderfully! I am scary with an Xacto alone, not to mention anything sharper. But, I might try this!

Super gorgeous stuff! I took a stamp carving class a year or so ago and my appreciation for this medium is still stuck in 5th gear! Have fun!!!

Watch out! This becomes addicting! Those soft erasers, little bits being cut off - I had to stop as I couldn´t control myself from cutting the entire eraser into a million bits! Hmmm, explains why I am a nail biter - compulsive behavior! Yours look great!
