Red Squirrel card

Its a gorgeous autumnal day in Essex today so this card is very appropriate. It’s not often you see a squirrel stamp and this new one from Marianne is a fab layering one.

It consists of 4 layers that build on top of each other to complete the image. I stamped it onto some Coconut White Foundations card and then die cut it out using a die from the Presscut Stitched Oval die set.  The inks I used are the little Versacolor pads in Topaz, Paprika, Brown and Pine cone. I stamped the sentiment which is from a Woodware set in Pine cone.

The leaves and acorns are from another Marianne set and I used more Versacolors this time  in Marigold, Orange, Bark and Pine cone and the acorns were stamped with the same colours as the Squirrel. There are two different leaf sizes in the pack, again using four different stamps to build the layers. You also get four more stamps for the acorns. They were all cut out and arranged using foam pads and some twine wrapped through them for a bit of rustic look.

The background was created using one of the outline stamps from the leaf stamp set using Versamark ink on Chestnut card.  Card base was also made from Coconut White.

Hope you like back again tomorrow with another autumnal card and Distress Oxide inks.
