New Stamp.

 Continuing on in my series of stamps carved from native tree seed pods, I wanted to make this bunch Eucalypt 'nuts' my next project. Not only is the perspective a bit tricky, but the cruciform shape that the stems of the nuts make is almost too geometric.
 After drawing it out a few times to get the hang of the shapes I craved a smallish stamp, and because the cruciform shape is so obvious in the original I decided to make a feature of it and move the nuts apart a bit more and add geometrically placed leaves.
The finished stamp is almost O.K , but I do want to make a bigger one and to make a few adjustments.
