Isn't this little squirrel just the cutest? Especially since he is a nice one who isn't going to try and steal birdseed from my feeders. I love to watch the squirrels as the jump from branch to branch, run circles around the trees, and especially when they do the tight rope walk across the streets on the telephone wires. This squirrel, the leaves and the basket of leafs is a sneak peek at a soon to be released set by Mark's Finest Papers called Autumn Fun. I used the leaves from the set to stamp with versamark ink on the panels as well as the envelope. I then did ink spray smash on them. When the paper dried, I used the same leaves to stamp again on the paper with brown ink. This photo doesn't do this card justice, because it was so hard to photograph the versamark leaves. You can seem in real life though. I masked the little squirrel and stamped the leaf basket. The leaf basket and squirrel were colored with prisma colored pencils.

  1. Sweet squirrel, and a great use of the sketch challenge. I think I gathered from Roxie that those are oak leaves - very different to ours, if they are.
