Visible Image "Nuts About Squirrels" Card



For anybody that follows my Instagram, you will know that I have red squirrels visit my garden each day and that I'm a little addicted to them!  So when Visible Image brought out the "Nuts About Squirrels" stamp set, it was a no brainer purchase.  For some reason, I've not got round to using it till today. 

For the background area, I have used Brusho paint granules sprinkled on to damp paper, which allows the paint to spread, with makes different colours to pop.  Once dry, I then stamped teh Visible Image "Fibonacci" scroll and grid using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I also stamped the "You're my kind of nutty" sentiment, part of the Visible Image "Nuts About Squirrels" stamp set in the same ink.

I then stamped the squirrel on to the card, using Versafine Clair "Acorn" and "Fallen Leaves" brown inks, I stamped the same image on to a piece of white card too using the same shades.

I coloured the squirrel on the white card, using Distress Oxide Inks and Sakura Gelly Roll pens. I then cut the image out and adhered on to the card.
