Get Well Squirrel

Hi there 🙂 I was thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer on Coloring With Pencils Challenge this month. Their sponsors this time are Color Of Love, Last Minute Manda, Polkadoodles, and the Paper Shelter! I was given this adorable image from Last Minute Manda to work with. This little guy is from the A Bunch of Nuts set, and is perfect for all kinds of autumn makes. I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut him out.

For the card base, I cut out a multi frame base with a die set, inlaying the dark brown outer die with a lighter brown multi sectioned piece. I printed off the sentiment on my computer, and then die cut the centre piece again. The pieces that didn’t have the sentiment on them were run through a wood grain embossing folder, then they were all attached in the frame. I popped the fussy cut image on with some foam pieces to give a bit of dimension. I’ve had these wood embellishments for quite some time, so I added a bit of color to them with some Distress Inks, and attached them for a fun fall touch.

I’d like to thank the team at Coloring With Pencils for inviting me to join them this month, and would love to see all my pencil coloring friends join in at this fabulous challenge!!
