Custom Stamp

This is by far the most challenging stamp I have made. It was a custom order for someone to stamp on their wedding invitation envelopes. There are so many little crevices to carve out, it took a while, but I think I'm better at carving now! I want to try making this stamp in different fonts because it's a really cute saying. I see a lot of hand carved stamps that are images, and not a whole lot of words or text. I want to get really good at carving text so I can be unique. It's really challenging to carve text well.

Here is the sketch I made to lay on the rubber before carving:
Eat drink and be married 3
And again the finished product:

That turned out so pretty. I don't know how you managed such detail work. But I think lettering/or short sayings would be great for stamping.
