I came across a old teacher's rubber stamp that when new said "good work" With time and I imagine a lot of use (at least I hope a lot of use, haha) It is in pretty rough condition now. When i pressed it for the first time, to my surprise it seemed to read "good world" with a smiley face that seems to be deteriorating. If you've seen my samps before, you know I can get political with them. Not intending to go in that direction with this, It sure feels incredibly prevalent, and though it may have been accidental speaks volumes to the extreme chaos that we are engulfed in on a daily basis. I started making these as a fun goofy stamp. I finish them feeling uneasy once again.

Thanks for sharing this find.  I love the accidental discovery and ambiguous interpretation.

As Robin said below.....it's a "gooooey" world.
