Don't laugh, it's really important for me to know what's wrong with it... If you don't like it - tell me why, plzzz...  :-[
Is it theme, technique or unlucky star?  ::)

I want your critique!

In fact, the idea of this stamp was great )))
People of our country are fallen angels, which want to come back home. But they can't do that because of some reasons, you know... Lazyness, unhappyness, bad politicians... :-\ So they only pray and look above in awaiting with patience )

The reason is only in colours?

Thanks a lot! I agree with you for cross and stars. It's important amendment!  :y:
But let me not to agree with angel's body. There's a baggy shirt, not armour )

One more thanks!
Does Anyone else want to say something?   ::)

An edit with some minor changes:
  • Deeper U
  • Symmetrical K
  • Removed the squiggle on top of the I (possibly wrong; what is it?)
  • Broken some patterns in the halo of the moon
  • Stippled (softer) outline around the moon
  • Highlight and shadow colours of the moon reach the outline
  • Added and deleted stars
  • Expanded stamp corners (still not perfect, as they are too square while the sides are too smooth; 2 pixels aren't enough)
  • Corrected left stamp edge to look like the right edge

I lack the patience and skill to try my hand at shading the interior of the moon, which I think is too irregular.
I'm unconvinced of the choice of pale pink letters with a white drop shadow; there is enough room for a symmetrical contrasting outline around the letters instead.

The text was correct, it read Україна, or Ukraine (Ukrayina) in Ukrainian.

I suspected something of this kind; unfortunately there isn't enough space for placing two dots and their drop shadow without compromises.
