Still Stamp Carving.

 A relative has a beautiful Silver Princess Eucalypt in his garden and I've long admired the spectacular hanging bunches of bright red flowers, but now that it has finished flowering, the seed capsules are all hanging down in their place. Shorter and broader than the other eucalypt seed capsules that I've carved, I found it difficult to get the proportions of these quite right.
 The leaves are fairly typical eucalypt leaves, the long thinish variety that is, so I've made them fairly generic.
 The carving is looking O.K here, that is until I cut the lower bit of one of the leaves off by mistake!
Oh, well, leaves come in all sizes and shapes, this one is just shorter and thinner than I originally intended.
