Thanks & cheers Jono, it was a fun project. Couple of things I forgot is that using a fractal or cloud fill creates a bitmap as does creating anything other than a floor shadow. I could get around creating a vector glow shadow but the textured fill in Xara isn't possible as far as I can see.

Of course creating vectors, as in the case of the face, makes for very large file sizes so unless it's really required very large isn't worth the effort. Further to this, using a bitmap allows you to use dark/light contones which is great if you want to use named colours across the stamp.
