Altered Stamp Blocks


My friend Linda was throwing out a load of stamp blocks after she peeled the stamps off all of them. I said you cant throw them out and rescued them from the bin. I have painted them and covered them with stamped images and papers then put wax all over them. So something out of nothing! Hope she likes them when we are all having our Arty Thursdays at her house. The only problem is that you cant just do one as they are very addictive so think I will carry on and make some more tomorrow!

I am not taking any responsibility if you choose to take your stamps apart..its all Lindas (LME) fault!! but thanks for all your comments..thinking of putting some on etsy soon as my etsy is looking a bit empty at the moment!
