Fish linocut stamp

I´ve carved another fish linocut stamp for my handsewn draughts game pieces. I think this will be one side of the fish pieces (the 3 minnows will be the other side). I carved another fish because the fish has to take up most of the space on the beanbag or else its too hard to see which pieces are yours and which are the opponent´s. The previous single fish stamp was too small.

This checkers game is taking a long time... I´m enjoying the carving and design process though, testing different stamps and fabrics. [I´ve since finished this game - click here]
