Not just tiles!
Besides the tiles I have stamped and colored I also have done these wooden blocks. These are really fun to work with and very inexpensive to make. I purchased the blocks from Oriental Trading Co. They come in a package of three. I really like the distressed look.
The blocks work well with stamping and coloring or with decorating with papers and embellishments. As with the tiles when I stamp an image on these I use Stazon and color in eith my markers. When using papers I run the size paper I need through my Xyron and then adhere it to the front of the block. The stamped and colored blocks I do spray with a sealer. Because of the rustic look I use a matte spray. I think and added shine of a glossy sealer would take away from the rustic flavor.
I really like the way these turned out. I hope visitors to our craft boutique do as well.
