The Beatles: Happiness Is A Warm Gun
This was first attempt at an LTC in October of 2009.  I was not sure of what to expect or what to even design.  I decided to try and come up with some imagery that was ambiguous as well as appear like a movie poster.  This Beatles song i chose was a little more obscure than some of their hits but i had seen it performed in the movie Across The Universe and it was a cool scene so i thought i would pick that one.  I had not been carving that long but thought that a one color print would be the easiest for a first time card.  I suppose, after the fact, that some color might have helped make the image pop more but it was an interesting design for my first time out.

  1. What a great image. Very well done for a newer carver. Nice clean lines. I like that it's a simple black and white. I think it draws more attention to the flow of your image.
    However, if you use the stamp for something else and feel it needs a little color - I find that using watercolors, markers, or color pencils for a bit of color here and there and help make things pop.
    Awesome LTC Spakinois!!
