AEDM (Day 25) - Whiskers

The Illustration Friday topic this week is WHISKERS and I at first thought of drawing a little critter with whiskers but then had the idea to carve a stamp with a whiskery greeting. . .
 Sketched my little dude out on vellum and transferred to my stamp medium for carving. 
Stamped him in mustard ink first and then reinked the beard/hair parts and used a stamp positioner to line him up for a cool contrast.
 Made a set of cards while I was at it - you never know when someone will need a whiskery "hi".
