Where we live there are grey squirrels everywhere , they come in the garden and take every nut that's put out for the birds , if they can , they bury them all around the garden flicking there tails and making that hissing/chirping noise . My dog Alfie loves to chase them ,never ever getting near. The red ones we never see , I've seen 2 in my life time . So I printed this image from the new "Jayne Netley Mayhew" digi stamp cd, I'd left the paper on my desk , later I coloured it using promarkers , my son Sam saw it and said "you've made it a red squirrel ! " well who wouldn't? I used rusty coloured core card to matt and sanded down for a rustc look , the bp and insert are from the cd but on the backing paper I added a grass seed stamp from a hero art stamp in dark brown ink . I used a spellbinder label die . The wooden leaf embellishment ,with distress inked edges , was the finishing touch. I'm going to give this card to my Father in law, for his Birthday next month.
I love promarkers : die cuts but no punches
the paper shelter : animal magic
crafty catz : anything goes
well I'm off to wolk the dogs , then work , then the supermarket , Fridays suck , but then again the sun is shining so it's not all bad.
happy crafting janex
