Swirly Tree

I tried to make it a stencil, but I ended up with a mask, and then I liked it too much and glued it into my journal. So, here's the perfect solution: I made it into a stamp!

Then I carved with my #1 tip:

Then I stamped it in my journal with StazOn so it won't smear when I paint over it:

I don't know why, but I find stamp carving freakishly fun.
