Catch a falling star.. or

Maybe make a stamp? It was probably about a year ago or so that i discovered that the Japanese hand cut rubber stamps really well! You can actually buy books on it too. Initially i used any old erasers - but i have since found out that if you use the 'real' stuff you get better results.. a friend recently gave me a sample of this black rubber which was really fantastic to work with, using woodcut tools + a scalpel. Of course their designs always seem to be soooo cute and gorgeous. Here i was trying to work with my own kitty character from my uncertainty series.. fiddly, and i guess a little - how you say 'labour intensive'. But cute!
