My stamp collection

I’ve never been a postage stamp collector but when an envelope arrives with a nice stamp on it, I keep it. Because you never know when you might need it, right? I think postage stamps really are tiny works of art and to show off some of them, I made a few fridge magnets. I cut a piece of chipboard a little bigger than the stamp, painted the edges with black acrylic paint and then glued the stamp on it. Finally a coat of decoupage lacquer and a magnet at the back.
