Sassy & Sweet Squirrel


This is the last of my three new Sweet & Sassy digi stamps, isn't he cute? Also, I just discovered that S&S has a challenge blog. It must be fairly new, because this sketch is SS04. It was a fun sketch to work with, and really quite different from most sketch challenges I've done. I didn't use a lot of layers here for two reasons. First, I didn't want to overwhelm this adorable image, and secondly, MME's Tres Jolie is so pretty, it stands well alone. The other papers are SU!'s Mellow Moss and Whisper White, and Bazzill for the base. I colored him with Prisma Colors and Gamsol. I can't be sure, but I think the gorgeous velvet ribbon was a Flourishes gift with purchase. I made sure that it went through to the inside of the card because it pains me to cover this ribbon! To do this, I just take a little snip off the card's fold with my SU! slit punch. I love that punch and use it all the time.

it's so cool to me that much of what you're doing now relates to this Beatrix Potter biography I'm reading ...
