Squirrel card

My card was featured on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog a week ago and I wanted to share it here too. I won some stamps from them in a blog contest and wanted to use the fall stamps they sent me before fall was over. 

I made a Halloween card that was also featured on their blog in late September with their stamps and have more to share before the holiday. 

I stamped the squirrel on watercolor paper by Royal and Langnickle and colored it in with distress markers and a water pen both by Ranger Industries. I then die cut the image out using a Spellbinders die and matted it onto a larger with brown cardstock. I inked the inside of the image die cut with Ranger distress ink Antique Linen. 

The leaf flourish is a Cricut die that I thought was fitting for this fall card. It has rough edges but again I thought it was OK for this card. 


The background paper is actually packaging from Imaginisce that I dry embossed with a Darice embossing folder. The patterned paper is by Recollections and the sentiment sticker is by Flair Designs. The banner die in cream/off white, that the sentiment is on, is cut out using my Cricut and the kraft cardstock (Oriental Trading Co) was hand cut to match the die cut. I did use my Tim Holtz attacher on the patterned paper just for fun.
