WT200 Hubby's Squirrel


As promised, here is a card I just made for today's Ways to use it challenge on SCS. We are to incorporate stars in our cards. I don't have a star punch, but found this DCVW designer paper with stars on it.

I asked my husband to draw a squirrel image for me. This is his first one.
I am going to call this image "Susie Squirrel in the rain". I love it! Wish I could turn it into a stamp.
For now I had to print it out on GP 110lb card stock, and it can actually be colored with no problems with alcohol markers. I use copics, blick studio and prismas. For the sentiment I punched out SU's large oval and then wrote the sentiment. I attached a flower from SU's flower trio punch to it with a brad and adhered it on another oval using pacific point card stock. For embellishments I added stickles to the flower center, glossy accents to the whole flower and the water puddle. the little flower with brad to the sentiment and did paper piercing around the edges of the white card stock.

Image: Susie Squirrel in the rain (RES designs)
Paper: Pacific point (SU), white (GP110lb), Designer paper (DCVW short stack)
Ink: HP ink jet, black micron pen - for sentiment
Accessories: alcohol markers, stickles, brads, flower trio punch and large oval punch (both SU), paper piercing tool (SU), dimensionals.

Thanks for looking.
