Owl Carving.

 I didn't think that I could carve anything too intricate in terms of feather etc, but this is the first attempt using the soft rubbery material for a  stamp. Here I've just drawn the outline of the owl.
             This is the shape coloured in with black pen to show me where to cut and not to cut.
                                      I've marked a few details here with a white marker pen.
                     This is the first stamp before I cut the owl out from the background 'rubber'.
It's O.K., but the details are a bit rough. Maybe I should try it with a lino cut, as the details will be crisper, even if it is harder to carve.
