Kingfisher stamp

 
 
 
 
As a child I was fascinated by the common kingfisher, especially because of his bright blue color of his back. After remembering that, I started to carve one and printed some cards and little notebooks. 
Als Kind war ich vom Eisvogel fasziniert, besonders wegen der auffallend blauen Färbung am Rücken. Als ich mich daran erinnert hatte, fing ich sofort an zu schnitzen und bedruckte Karten und kleine Notizbücher.

So beautiful!! :) :) :)

How large is the stamp? I never dared to carve a big stamp till now. I've only carved small ones, but I really have to start bigger carving projects! :) :)

Thank you! It is about 11,5 x 7,5 cm which is about 4,5 x 3 inch. The only tricky thing is using stamp pads then :)
