Oh my word, this stamp set from Neat & Tangled is so cute,I love the little squirrels. I just had to make a card with them.
All stocked products listed at the end of the post
I stamped the large image of 2 squirrels hugging in a nut from the My Favourite Nut Stamp Set from Neat & Tangled and used 3 of the sentiment together to say "you are my favorite little nut", in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock.
I coloured the image using my Copic Markers, and added a drop shodow with the Copics also. You could use any colouring medium to do this.
I used Peacock Feathers Distress ink with a mini ink blending tool to add colour to the background, leaving a halo around the image itself to help draw make it the focal point.
I then used some of the little heart stamps from the set to add a little extra interest to the background.
Oopsie alert!! I'm going to be honest. If you can see little spots on the card, this is from another card that's in the making, where I was flicking watered down distress ink to make a background and accidentally got it on this card too. Fortunately it's not to noticeable and actually does add a little more "interest" :D
