Squirrel inspired


This is a commissioned card for my mum to send to my sister in law. My brother told mum that she wasn't to send cards withloads of 'crap' on as he called it meaning flowers and 3D embellishment mainly because mum in a rush thinking it would be ok sent a card for my nephew that was thicker than 5mm so my brother had to go pay extra postage and he wasn't a happy bunny. This is the card I came up with. I do love the cards Squirrel(shirley) makes and think her painting in distress inks is something I envy greatly one very talented lady - well I think so anyway.

I used this cute teddy from forever friends and used my promarkers as paints  by scribbling on a poly bag and using a watercolour pen, not as beautiful as Squirrels distress re-inkers but I think it worked.The daisies are coloured with  sakura pens .



I finished the card with a peel-off it almost felt like I'd cheated but I was quite pleased with the finished result.Thanks for the inspiration Squirrel.
