DoodleFactory

Images © Starving Artistamps, DoodleFactory & SunSpirit Studio

I really love the DoodleFactory stamps, as they are unique in style...and so cute! This little ladybug is Gus. I saw the Red and River Rock color combo at Tracy's blog, and thought it would look great with my ladybug. I stamped Gus with Adirondack Pitch Black, and colored him with my Copic Sketch markers. I highlighted his antennae with my Clear Spica pen, and used my Crystal Effects on his spots and eyes. (I should add that his head was stamped again, colored, and mounted with dimensionals). My corner rounder punch was used for the red scalloping at the edge, and the dotted sheer ribbon is May Arts, purchased at Jacksonbelle's Ebay store. I love the Fern Leaf Tooled Leather background, and thought it would be a great background for Gus! The sentiment is from the SunSpirit Studio Celebrations set.

Thanks for visiting today!
