Squirrel goes Nuts

Hi Bloggers

I hope you are having a good week so far and that the rest of the week is kind to you. My week hasn't been too busy so I have had a bit more time to craft.

I have had the Squirrel stamp (by Sam Poole) for some time now and I had been waiting for a chance to use it. So when I found an Autumn themed challenge my opportunity came along.

  
To make the background I inked through a leaf border mask with Distress inks and then I stamped a newsprint stamp all over. Once this had dried I used the Birch tree mask to emboss the background when I had done this I inked through the mask. I had cut the mat so that there was a border around the mask which when inked looks like an extra mat. 


The Squirrel was stamped in Black archival and heat embossed with CS Clear detail embossing powder and then coloured with Promarkers. The leaves were made with punches that emboss and they were inked with Distress ink. The tree was cut with a Memory Box die. 


The sentiment comes with the Squirrel it was cut out with a spellbinder die that was inked through once it had been embossed. I had some leaves left over from the bottom of the card so I put here.

Thank you for visiting.

Happy Crafting

Jackie
