New Release Tuesday!

Fishing Gus

It’s Tuesday, which means we have another great new release at Bugaboo Stamps, and it features Mr. Old Fart himself “GUS”.  I love the sentiment that comes with the image, it fits Gus and most men perfectly! 

I colored the image with Copics, then added a glaze to his glasses.  Unfortunately, one of the glasses looks blurry, I think it’s the photo!  So I’ll just say it’s his bi-focals.  The designer paper is from the Marjolaine Paper pad by Basic Grey.  I embossed the panel with the Gears folder from Cuttlebug.
