Day 13: Carved Stamp (Hideous Crabby Kissy Blobby)

Todays assignment was to carve a stamp from a sponge or potato. "Easy" I thought, because I have carved lots of stamps from lino-blocks. Well, the sponge proved to be more difficult than I thought. I tried to carve out a radiation symbol (because I happened to be listening to a documentary about Chernobyl), that was a disaster. So I just carved out a leaf & smooshed it around some watercolor paper. I added some eyes & claws and made the mess into a Crabby Kissy Blobby. It's weird, but hey....I did my homework!

Here is today's result:
