Day of the Dead carved stamp

I carved a new stamp!  I love carving stamps.  I'm doing a Day of the Dead shrine and also a fat book, so I wanted something new to use, a new image.  I looked through my book of images I've saved for inspiration, and found this page from a book about the holiday.  That's the small image on the right.  I added a scarf and left off the moon and stars on his nightshirt, and here's what I came up with. You can see both my stamp and the image it makes when I use it.  Isn't it cool?  I love it!

Okay, well, I don't have any carving utensils or skill. So. Send this over.
