Okay here's how to use this stamp (see photo below):

  1. Stamp it using permanent black ink.  
  2. Color it in using either markers or colored pencils.
  3. Your're done unless you want a Jack-o-Lantern, for which you have a couple options.  One is to simply draw a face on the pumpkin using a Sharpie.  
  4. A more involved technique would be to cut the face out using a No. 11 Exacto, the place a piece of yellow paper (post-it note) behind the cut-out area, thus making it look like the lantern is lit!
This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California.  The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind).  The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top.   The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the "SVM" personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).
Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil. Block Width:2.75 inches Block Length:2.75 inches Block Thickness:3/4 inch Image Size:Approximately 1/4 inch less than block size
