Carved shell stamp

I love the days where I wake up and straight away start a new project! This morning I wanted to carve a new shell stamp. My mum bought me a set of shell stamps for my birthday when I was a kid, but of course I have no idea what I did with them!

After about an hour, here is the end result...


I'm happy with how it turned out and quite enjoyed carving this simple design. One day I will research mounting ideas so it is easier to stamp. 

I know not to superglue it to a piece of wood! This is what happened:


Hopefully someone else can learn from my mistake. I spent ages carving these stamps to use for our wedding invitations and was so upset after I glued it to the wood.
