I try to recycle whenever I can, and seeing the waste disposal problem here in Egypt, I try to find a second usage for almost everything. We try not to buy heavily packaged things whenever we can avoid it, but sometimes we end up with things like styrofoam platters. I keep them for crafting with the Sprout, for paint palettes and such.
I used two of them to create these donkey stamps, which I tested on two different types of paper. I prefer the texture and effect of the first which was done on cheap paper. Since it doesn't have any tooth, it allowed the stamp to slide around in interesting ways. However, I did have to apply paint twice on the second image because the first time, I didn't get good coverage (and it resulted in the blur-smudgy lines). Even from the first application of paint, though, I could see that the effect wasn't as nice.
