Repeat Impressions - What If? Wednesday

Hello friends; happy Hump Day!

The Rock Stars are back with another What If? Wednesday over at The House That Stamps Built; Wendy offered up another great sketch this week and there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs, so be sure to play along!

AND I have a guest stamper joining me this week...won't you stick around and see who it is?

This week I've gone Christmas!  Nothing like getting a jump on those Christmas cards - right?  I chose one of the penguin's from last year's Christmas release - I love all the penguins so much; they are just adorable and you can't go wrong with any of them! I used white as my base with accents of Pure Poppy; the DP is from MME and Basic Grey - isn't it great that you can easily mix and match?

The border is a die from MFT Stamps with some red jewels for a bit of pizzazz!  The penguin was colored with Copics and mounted with dimensionals; I added the same border punch to the inside of the card too!

And...what you have ALL been waiting for...my guest artist:

Our youngest daughter Kaitlyn (she's 13 y/o).  She could not wait to play along this week!  She also chose a cute little penguin (with a halo...yeah, you understand why I couldn't choose the one with a halo, right? - LOL)!

Didn't she do a fabulous job?  She also used white as the base and then some Dark Chocolate and DP by PTI.  She chose some ric rac ribbon and chocolate pearls for an accent.  The penguin was colored with Copics, she also added some clear glitter to the wings and halo - she was disappointed you can't see the glitter in the pictures, but they are definitely sparkly IRL.

Be sure to check out what the other Rock Stars have created too, lots of fabulous eye candy to get your Mojo jumping!  Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT week and don't forget to play along!

....penguins in June...

Hugs, ~M.
