Brusho Squirrel

Hello lovely peeps

Today's card features the Squirrel from the Little Acorn stamp set by Sheena Douglass.

First I painted water all over a square of watercolour card and dropped Brusho crystals into it - gamboge, orange, light brown and turquoise. I moved the colours around with a wet paintbrush and water spritzer before drying with a heat gun.

Next I stamped the squirrel with Black Archival Ink and coloured him in with a mix of light brown and scarlet Brushos.

The little spots of colour I ended up with looked a little like flowers so I painted on stems and some ground with diluted grey Brusho and a fine paintbrush.

I trimmed the finished piece down and mounted it on a white 6x6 card blank - it's finished off with a sentiment from an old Crafters Companion stamp set called Dreamy Daisies.
