Gorgeous Grunge | Hardwood | Ink Pad holder

Howdy everyone, I've been really busy today with a project that I have been wanting to do for months!  So why today, well I started to clean up and reorganise my crafting area, then when I created a space, inspiration hit - and that was it for cleaning up, but I did manage to finish this:

I picked the craft wood turntable from a clearance rack in a craft store back in the new year, had the idea that it would be great for storing my ink pads and other regularly used items. Apart from roughly putting it together to make sure I had all the parts, I didn't get much further

Initially my plan was to paint and then decorate with DSP, but then today I got the idea of stamping.  I reached for my Gorgeous Grunge set without blinking and started - oh my there are lots of parts when you start stamping!

I needed something more, then again, inspiration, why not use the Hardwood Background stamp - it worked a treat.  For the larger sections I used Post-it notes so that I didn't double stamp the woodgrain

I even did some parquetry!

I also used the Hardwood stamp for the edges of the craftwood, I got carried away and went back and stamped Gorgeous Grunge where I had stamped over the edge too!

And here is the completed Ink Pad holder in "action"

I am over the moon with the finished product!
