I Need To Be Right By Your Side

This month the challenge at Crafty Individuals is anything goes. This has to mean it's time to break out the Alice Palace stamps, so here's a coaster.

I started by painting my plain white tile with DecoArt Multi Surface paints.
The penguins have been stamped onto tissue paper then painted on the back with white paint.
Once dry I've sprayed with DecoArt varnish and added some cork to the base.
I really like these stamps - very cute but not yuk lol.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking.
