I'm this old because...

Today is New Release day at BugABoo stamps and here is one of the images being released.  This is Margaret and you can tell she is not shy about how she feels!  Margaret is just one of the many great characters that Jodie at BugABoo has created for us to enjoy.  She comes with this humorous saying and I tend to agree with her!

I began by measuring my Spellbinders Labels Large die and then sizing the image to fit.  I printed the image onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Hair - W3
Skin - E000, E00
Top - YR16, YR23
Cup - BG32, R37
Glasses - B0000

Before removing the image from the die, I airbrushed B21 around it.  For the saying I used my Spellbinders Long Rectangle Nestabilities die and again, airbrushed B21 around it before removing it from the die.  The DP is from the Basic Grey Romani collection.  The top 2 flowers were cut out of the paper, the bottom flower, from my stash, was airbrushed to match.  I also colored the ribbon to match with my Copics.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches. 

Be sure to visit the Catch the Bug blog to see the rest of today's releases and to see what the design team has created with them.  And if you would like to try BugABoo stamps, stop by to store for some freebies.
