i always liked this stamp and this is a nice interpretation of the design. the scan may not show the detail enough to see that it is made with some kind of cutting machine, like a Cricuit (sp?) you can program images and fonts and the machine will cut them out. i'm not sure how you go about adhering them. maybe they will cut on adhesive paper. but, this would have been about an 8 hour envelope if someone had tried to draw those letters and then fill it all in. and it would have been beyond challenging to make the painted surface even. i suppose there are some markers that would work, but then you have the problem of the detail. markers that fill nicely are usually bleedy.
