On my desk this week for WOYWW I 've been having a go at stamp carving for a long term project I'm doing on coral. I usually use lino but decided to give this pink stuff a go - it's Speedball Speedy-Carve block and it's great stuff! It's so easy to use and following Julie Balzaar's advice of using a glass cutting board it made the job a whole lot easier.
I'm also having a bit of an obsession with Peonies at the moment, so following on from my previous blog post I'm adding some more photos of this beautiful flower. Sadly after being messed about by me for the photo session they decided not to open up in their vase but stayed as tight buds for quite a while before dying! They really don't like me!
