Catch The Bug Challenge – Metallic Colors

This week at Catch The Bug Saturday challenge, our theme is Metallic Colors plus Brads or Eyelets. 

Gus At My Age

After a week of Christmas cards, it was great to do a summer going to the beach card with “Gus”.  This image is called “Gus At My Age”.  You can find this image HERE, along with many more of the adorable and outrageous Gus.

I colored the image with Copics, and then added the clouds with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink using a dabber and a template.  The sentiment comes with the image.  The designer paper is from the Echo Park Summer Days paper pad.  I used the Swirls embossing folder by Cuttlebug on the silver card stock.

Fussy and Fancy Friday – Challenge #41 Summer.

Ladybug Crafts Ink – Challenge Summer Birthdays.

Tuesday Throwdown – Challenge #58 Something Metallic.
