Nuts About You !

I am so glad you'll enjoyed my previous post, I have another stepped out card  for you today.......

 I have used Clearly Besotted  'nuts for you' set and here is how I approached this card...

 Since the pictures are pretty self explanatory, I will not bore you with the details, but if you have any questions, please leave me a comment!

 If you observe closely, the pics above show the squirrel way darker than the below pics and the final card, that's because after I sketched in the background, I felt the squirrel was a bit dark and 'jumping off the page' relation to the I went over the entire image part by part with a wet brush and lifted off some color. I think it looks much better now!

A close up.......

 I hope you like it !
