You're a Little Nuts & I Love It! (Clarence Inspired)

It's squirrel Friday!!!

Well, honestly, every day of the week is squirrely here - I'm waiting for it to get light so I can go feed mine. 

But today is even SQUIRRELIER because sweet Mendi has come out with a stamp set inspired by my beloved CLARENCE! And it's RIDICULOUSLY cute. I mean seriously. Look at all these tiny squirrels! I used all but one of them on my card - he's going on another card. I stamped them all on a single card front and die cut them.

The expressions on their faces are so cute. 

I decided since everyone always colors them brown, I'd make a bright, colorful background for them instead and just shade them with a grey Graphit marker. The one top center reminds me soooo much of how mine stand when I'm about to toss a pecan. 

Anyway, what I did was cut three stencils with my Circle Infinity dies out of masking paper - you need three because that will keep you from contaminating your ink as you do the ombre blending, which will take six brushes. Thank goodness I keep collecting them. :)

I placed each squirrel on my pre-cut card panel where I wanted them. Then I put the stencil down and lightly traced it with a stylus around each squirrel. Next, I put a piece of Press 'n Seal down to pick up all the squirrels at once. Then, on to the ink blending on the card panel.

I went left to right in rainbow order, blending electropop inks, two circles at a time. When I was done, I put glue on all the upside down squirrels that were on my Press 'n Seal, and transferred them all at once to my colorful card front! 

How cheerful is this? I love it so much! The sentiments are from the same set.
