Hand Carved Stamps, Part Two

This second stamp is Ernie the Envelope, Swap-bot's symbol.

Posing here in gray and blue ink.  I think he looks best in blue.   :-)
I made Ernie mainly for decorating the swaps that I send out.

This one I did just by hand drawing on the rubber. I didn't actually trace anything (probably why it's a little bit sloppy).

To care for your rubber stamps as best as possible wash them gently with cool water and a little bit of soap, and then dry- but not on a good towel! I learned the hard way that ink still comes off. Some ink colors wash off easier than others.  I just try my best. Any tips from seasoned campaigners would be appreciated. :-)

Come back tomorrow for the last rubber stamp!
