Brusho Squirrel

Hello lovely peeps

Today's card features the Squirrel from the Little Acorn stamp set by Sheena Douglass.

First I painted water all over a square of watercolour card and dropped Brusho crystals into it - gamboge, orange, light brown and turquoise. I moved the colours around with a wet paintbrush and water spritzer before drying with a heat gun.

Next I stamped the squirrel with Black Archival Ink and coloured him in with a mix of light brown and scarlet Brushos.

The little spots of colour I ended up with looked a little like flowers so I painted on stems and some ground with diluted grey Brusho and a fine paintbrush.

I trimmed the finished piece down and mounted it on a white 6x6 card blank - it's finished off with a sentiment from an old Crafters Companion stamp set called Dreamy Daisies.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Glitter n Sparkle #260 Fall/autumn

Deep Ocean Challenge #165 colours of autumn

Fairy Tiptoe on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps

As I mentioned last week, I have run out of older cards to show you so I will showcase my older stamps on Throwback Tuesdays from now on.

By happy coincidence the theme for this month's Lili of the Valley Challenge is 'Retro' - make something with the first LOTV image you bought (or one of the first if you can't remember exactly).
