Carved Stamp as Focus ATC

This month on 9ATC group we are to use a hand carved stamp or found object stamp as the main focus of our ATC, and not use commercial stamps. 
I made my stamp by using a die to cut out a bird image from fun foam, then used a ball point pen to "carve" a design into the bird image. Cut another bird image out of the fun foam and attached them together for double thickness. Attached this to thin plastic as a base.
 Stamped image from the "hand carved" stamp:
 Choose a piece of shinning stone background for my ATC base. Placed a butterfly music washi tape along the bottom.
Stamped the bird image with tarnished pewter Distress paint. Outlined the image with a silver Gelly Roll pen.
 Cut out letters from a music sheet and colored with Twinkling H2Os and added a green rhinestone for an eye.
