Stampotique Something New

It's Wednesday which can mean only one thing, it's a new challenge theme at Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and this week my fellow teamie Kaz is our hostess and here is what she has to say:

"I am just a little bit nosey, so for this challenge I'd like you to use something that Santa brought you! Don't worry if you didn't get crafty stash, just use something that you recently bought for yourself. If you really want to, you could make something with the theme of something new as well. Just make sure you enjoy making it."

I didn't get any crafty goodies for christmas, but I did buy myself a copy of Cloth, Paper, Sissors to read over the holiday and on one of the pages was a lovely project using wooden blocks and this made me revisit something I was doing a lot a year or so ago, which was decorating these little bits of mixed media heaven, so using the four blocks pictured below.

 I made the finished item that you see at the start of this post. For four little wooden blocks it made a terrible mess on my desk!!!

I used the following stamps

elemements from France's Carousel stamp

Please check out the BLOG for details of how to join the challenge and for how you can possibly win $30 of Stampotique vouchers.

Hope you have a lovely day, Carol x

Fabulous Carol, very inventive, can't believe you made a mess though, it's only 4 blocks...:-)

What a fabulous idea to use the wooden blocks - reminds me I bought a set of Jenga-like wood pieces last time I was at Ikea thinking I'd do something with them... now, I wonder where they've got to!

Thanks for the fab inspiration as always!
