Fashion Figure

Sometimes my stack-of-stuff next to my reading spot gets pretty unruly.  At times I don't remember what's in the stck and why.  In going through it, I remembered I keep saving figures from the sale papers so that I can carve silhouette stamps from them.  So, I had a decision to make, continue tidying up or stop then and there and make some carvings.  Need I say more.

Glad I got that out of my system.  I discovered that making scribble marks is a lot easier with a writing tool than with a carving tool.  And I discovered that the rounded carving tool helps make great circles (which is why the stamp on the right had three holes in her body.  No word on how she ended up with one skinny leg and one fat wavy leg!)
Now I need to get back to clearing out that stack, which is mostly composed of expired coupons and newpaper clippings of events that have already passed...

Cool, Pat! What did you carve them from?
