Kiwi Stamp - Day 14

Always good to try a new skill.
I have seen some stamp making tutorials around (will try to refind and add to this post), and decided to give it a go.
I couldnt find my carving blades that I have "somewhere safe" (and are probably dusty and rusty from unuse anyway!), and so this became a bit of a hatchet job with a craft blade. I also just used an old eraser we have floating around the place.
I decided a Kiwi was a good first shape. Then I had to showcase it somehow, so have used the stamp to create a rainbow coloured koru.

For a rough job, it's not too bad. It at least makes me consider experimenting more with this in the future.
