Eraser Carving-The Year of the Rat
Every year I join a carving swap celebrating the Chinese New Year. The year 2008 is the Year of the Rat. Not my favorite Chinese New Year character!!! As always, I had a hard time deciding what to carve-so I carved two rats-one for the front and one for the back of the page. I have yet to decide what to do for a background, so what you see here are the naked carvings. LOL! I do love to carve. I hate to stamp afterwards, as it seems so final. But carving is just beyond description. You get in the groove and do not, cannot stop. Love it!
