WIP: Shelby's Wedding Stamp

Been carving from 5.30pm -11.o0pm. The carving process is very slow as the details are so tiny. I do take short break once in a while, but around 10.30 I start to feel dizzy and nauseatic so I stop carving and lie on the floor. I grab one inkpad to test the stamp, and take pictures while still lying down.

Yes veda, not only that, I got strained-neck, backache (probably due to unergonomic chair n table and working too long in the same position) and felt like vomitting. Uweek!

Dear Author www.kulitmanggis.com !
I am sorry, that has interfered... At me a similar situation. I invite to discussion.

Salam Manggo, lama sungguh tak singgah.

Eiffel tu memang halus kerjanya. Semakin kecil pula, kang sakit2 pula.

Wah, kalau halus macam tu macam nak sama dengan ukiran kayu halus pula : )

Salam Mango, I pun slalu ada masalah yg sama..bukan teruk mengukir macam you tapi kalau buat hantaran kawin especially (byk sikit hiasan dari hamper), kdg2 tertido ler atas lantai :P

babydoll!! i really really appreciate the effort put into my stamp. thank you so so so much and i'll make sure it's all worth your effort. i didn' it drove you the brink of syncopal attack... i adore it even more now. just a quick question... what stamp pad / ink brand did you use to make the print stand out so well like that?? i have some problem making it as clear as your print.

Thanks so much shelby!

i use colorbox/versacolor/versacraft (tsukineko)... ink the surface well before stamping it down. since i use small inkpads, i turn the inkpads upside down and dab it on the stamp. This way it is easier to see if the whole surface has been inked evenly.:)
