Academy Awards: The Godfather
This was the second LTC i ever made.  I made it in October of 2009.  I decided for my second stamp to go a little adventurous and try the two color stamp process.  It was a bit tricky trying to get both images onto separate transfer sheets, applying them to two separate stamps and making sure they both line up properly.  The brown/tan i used is a little different then how it shows up on this image but it's pretty close.  I tried a couple of other colors (red, blue) for the flesh but eventually chose the brown for everyone else and kept the odd colored ones for myself.  I really do like the way this one came out.  The white parts you see on the brown was what i carved out and kept the rest of the stamp solid so it lined up easier when i laid the solid black stamp over it.  So there is actually brown underneath that black as well.  And then on the black stamp, everything you see is what i carved out on that piece so that when i laid it over the brown that's what showed through.
