Altered Stamp Block "Steampunk"


Well,I've certainly not posted twice in one day for a very long time...must be something in the water today,lol.
I came across a brand new challenge today and just had to enter it. The challenge, which is over at  http://steampunkjunkies.blogspot.co.uk/  says to make anything so long as it has the steampunk theme. I rummaged around and found some old wooden blocks that were left over after I removed the rubber stamp.
First I covered the block with papers from (Olde Curiosity Shoppe) by Graphic 45, then used distress ink on all the edges. Using the same pad I used a few of the tabs to decorate the block. To finish I added some of the cogs and top piece from...http://www.crafty-emblies.com/ but the chain and gorgeous bird cage is from my stash.
Thank you to all that drop in to look at my work...I really appreciate your visits and comments...xx

Love how you have used cogs to make the feet and a grand idea to use otherwise old and forgotten stamp blocks up. I like to reuse as much of everyday packaging up as I can. Thankyou for your comment on my blog.
