Doodle Gus

This little critter is named Gus and he is made by Doodle Factory and distributed by Starving Artistamps. I have several of these Doodle Factory animals and I could not wait to use one of them.

I used the round tab punch to make the 2" circle that Gus is showing through. You take a 3" x 3" square piece of paper, push the tab punch in as far as it will go (make sure it is centered in the square) and punch out a tab. Turn the 3" x 3" square one turn and punch in the center again and you get this 2" circle. Pretty cool, huh?

It's hard to tell in the picture but the pomegranate piece is stamped with the Ornate Tooled Leather Background stamp from Starving Artistamps with pomegranate ink. I then used SA's faux stitch stamp to do the border on the small matted piece.

Gus made me happy while I was making this card because he is so cute. TFL and check back for more Doodle Factory animals!!
