I really like how this turned out, even though I can look at it and see that my stamp making skills have advanced quite a bit since then.
The original contest stamp:
Stamp template by me and can be found in my resource folder ---> [link]

*** As with most of my smileys, you may use this on and off dA, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. If you do use it for something, it would be nice if you could comment and let me know. It encourages me to make more smileys if I know people are using/enjoying them.
Please note, this piece is NOT available for commercial use.***
Once I found a book a my school library, the cover was SO dirty, ripped, destroyed, you couldn't read anything on it. I read a few pages, it was good! Checked it out, and my friends were like : that is the ugliest book ever.
Me: It is in fact, pretty good. You haven't even read a sentence of it.
Friends >: | derp.
Great stamp ^^
