Handcarved Stamp ATCs

My first ATCs in months. These are for an EC swap of ATCs made with handcarved stamps. I carved this fish out of a Nasco Safety-Kut block and used pigment inks. The background of the cards are done with my new alcohol inks. Thanks to someone on Ephemeral Notions, I tried dropping the inks onto wax paper, squirting the blender onto my piece of felt and then picking up the inks with it and dabbing them all over the glossy photo paper. It worked like a charm. I did the outlines with Roseart metallic markers, added an eyelet & fibers and voila! These were fun.
