What's Your Tipple?

A while ago, I went through my small, stamp collection and
put aside those stamps, that I thought didn't really fit my new CAS style.
I intended to sell them here on my blog, but never got round to it!

Here's one of those stamps that has had a reprieve :-)

I stamped my penguin over the edge of a card panel, dusted off my Copics and got colouring.
The sentiment was added to a die cut speech bubble and then I just
scattered a few sequins and gems.

It just goes to show that, even if you're making CAS cards,
you should take another look at your older stamps.

ABC Xmas - Something Festive
Christmas At Sweet Stampin' - Christmas Critters
Stamp - Wild Rose Studio 'Pickle With Tipple' coloued with Copics.
Speech Bubble Die - Clearly Besotted
Sentiment - Wplus9 'Heartfelt Holidays'   Gold Stickles     Sequins

I agree, it all depends on how you use the stamp, you might not use all the stamp for example. Your colouring here is fabulous and the design very CAS!
