Craft A Scene - Forest Aminals Week 3

I'm back for the second time today, this time with my Craft A Scene hat on. We are now on week 3 in our challenge for Forest Animals. This week I've used a lovey Digi image that I found on the Nicecrane Designs webshop, with lots of lovely squirrels running and playing in the tree. I chosen to make my squirrels Red, these are very rare in the UK, as they have been driven out by the more common Grey squirrels. You can still find then in remote places like Brownsea Island, The Isle Of Wight, and Scotland. They are also a lot shier than the grey squirrel and are hard to spot. We have quite a lot of grey squirrels near to where we live and they will very often tease my dog, by waiting until he is near and then running up the tree, seeming to know that the dog can't follow them (he does try though). I've coloured the images with aqua pencils, and added a sentiment that I felt went with the image. I then matted onto some rust and cream coloured card before adding it to a brown card base.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

A lovely image - it is a shame that red squirrels are almost extinct in the UK they are so much prettier than their grey cousins.

That is a gorgeous image! And you coloured it beautifully. The sentiment is perfect for that card. It is one of my favourite sentiment stamps.
