Carving Homework - Damask

Stamp Carving 101

Last night I carved the stamp for my Damask class homework and tonight I used it to make a card.  Here's my stamp:

 It's big enough that I stuck it to a block to make it easier to use. I stamped it onto a piece of striped paper from the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding pack of 12x12 I may have until I die, and made this:

I followed the Waltzingmouse sketch, mostly because it worked with this large-ish image, and the recipe is from Craft Your Passion: 1 Ribbon or twine, 2 Different Pattern Papers and 3 or more buttons. I was pretty happy I used two papers from a Christmas pack and did NOT make a Christmas card. :) In the spirit of this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge of Heavy Metal, I even used some brown eyelets on top of the main panel, which you can barely see under the ribbon here:

Alrighty, then, one more stamp to carve and a stack of challenges to tackle, so I'm going back in. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
