    I like these simple drawings and am very curious to know what you are going to make with all these.
    I also love stamps and a while ago I got the tools to start carving my own but so far I haven't tried them.
    I only did stamps from potatoes cut with a knife and that worked out pretty well.
    What do you use for your stamps? Rubber? Erasers? Wood?

    putting it in some kind of a frame (i'm sure you could design an appropriate one) would look so amazing.
