Oh carp! Catch the bug Free Friday

Friday June 9, 2017
 
Welcome to Friday and that means it's Free Friday at Catch the bug.
If you love Gus.. you're going to love this one..
 
 
Gus the fish whisper..  LOL.. Gus is one of my favorites along with Stella..  I colored him with copics. I was then thinking of a sentiment to use.. I wanted it to be different so going through my mounds of stamps I saw the Taylored Expressions stamp set that had fish and sentiment.. I did not use all of the sentiment but thought the Oh Carp! I forgot your birthday was perfect.. I then stamped one of the fish in the TE set and fussy cut it out and colored it. I then added it with a foam dot. I then created my background using my cloud template.  I added some Spectrum Noir glitter pen.
