CC&S #361 – Go Nuts

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Go Nuts | by karen h @ carefree creations

When I saw this sketch I realized that it would be a good one to use those smaller images that might get lost on a card by themselves. When I was stamping, the Friendly Forest set was catching my eye.

The squirrel has some open areas – I filled those in with colored pencil.

This is one of those cards that makes my multi-brand-buying heart very happy! Three images all from different companies!

My kid commented that it uses a lot of different browns, but I think it works. I did feel the acorn top was a bit too pale, so I added colored pencil accents.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
