Sherlock Holmes

I started reading the Sherlock Holmes books last year, and I absolutely love them. When Tyra, my dearest friend, asked me to carve a stamp for her City of Books event in April, I chose to do Sherlock Holmes.
I found an image that I loved, but I had no idea how to turn it into something carvable. The 3 Blind Mice came to my rescue, and I decided to carve this 2-layered stamp. Thanks, Mice!
The frame isn't on the card, by the way. I put it on electronically.
"My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know."

I didn't get every image at the event but I was lucky to get this one! I think my exact response was "WOW!"

Thank you so much for this amazing contribution!
