So, since I'm a crazy hoarder, I totally save all the stamps from all the envelopes that I get in the ongoing ATC swap.  So, needless to say, I have a lot of stamps!  I was getting a little bogged down in them actually, and last month decided to just make up some ATCs! 



So, I modgepodge down each stamp, added some distressing ink, paint pens, and paint dabbers to the edges, and stamped on a penguin with a letter stamp that I have.

I've sent off one of these babies so far, and will probably give the last two away in the Ongoing ATC Swap if I find a theme that fits.  ^_^

 It's so cute that the penguin is delivering mail. I like the idea of stamps for the background. You pulled it off well. Very cute!
