An altered stamp block from me...my friend commissioned two of these to give as Christmas presents.

I started with a mood board using smooshed distress paints (this is where my water came in), once cut to size and glued in place I added some stamping using stamps from the Mix Mash set. Wording on the front was computer generated and printed onto tissue. It's a Boy is an old wooden stamp, ribbon from my stash. I used gilding wax around all the edges.
