Altered Wooden Stamp Block

Happy Monday everyone and hope you all had a good weekend and managed to get some crafting done.
I've been doing some altering using a wooden stamp block as the base. I took the original stamp off some time ago and put it on Ezimount as the block was much too big for the stamp and made positioning very difficult.
As the block stands up well by itself, I decided to make a double sided piece of artwork for variety.
I'm entering it in the following challenges, both with a theme of altering or recycling:
Allsorts Challenge and also Tuesday Taggers Challenge
 Ingredients Used:
The Lady with Veil photo stamp came from Ali Crafts-she's called Maude and is by Stampsmith ( thanks to Sally for letting me know the make are due here).
The Lady with Roses I've had for a while and can't remember the make but will add if I can find it.
Rose by Time to Stamp, Ornate Shape by Artemio
Ranger Distress Inks-Victorian Velvet, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo
Stewart Superior Palette inks-Belle Rose, L'Amore Red, Boudoir Blush, Black
Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist 
Cuttlebug Folders, Victoria, Textile, Organic Flourishes Borders
H20 Paints in Rose Gold and Gold Dust
Flowers and Roses
German Gold Scrap
Martha Stewart Lattice Border Punch
Acrylic Paint in gold
Coral Accent Beads
This is actually quite simple to make. The Cuttlebug embossed panels were sponged with the Distress inks and then spritzed with the Glimmer Mist. The stamped panels were stamped with the Palette inks and then sponged with Distress inks.
The photo stamps were stamped on semi gloss paper with black ink and sponged with Distress inks to colour when dry.
The rose lady panel was stuck to a slightly larger panel of double sided adhesive film and Accent Beads added to make a frame.
The veiled lady was stuck to a panel embossed at the base with one of the organic flourish borders. This side was finished with flowers altered with the H20 paints.

Wow! Totally stunning project. What a great use for your block. I think the veiled lady is from Stampsmith. It's doubtful I'll manage any shows this year, although Doncaster is a possibility later on. I've spent rather a lot on my visits to Sir Stampalot, and there are more of those planned! Hope you enjoy Ally Pally. I'll say hello to Rob for you when I see him next.
Thanks so much for joining us at TT this week

Hi Fliss

Afraid I can't comment on your card, Mr Blogger is throwing his usual Monday hissy fit and half of our piccies have gone walkabout for now.

But I am sure it is wonderful and Sally is a great judge. Thanks for joining in at Allsorts, even if I've not seen it yet.
