Sweet Squirrel - With Emma

Hi 2Crafty friends, Emma sharing with you today.
Today's inspo is a page that has been created for a guest design over at CSI
that 2crafty is sponsoring this month.

Here is the chipboard I chose to use.....

Wild Flower Set
Fine Stem Frames
Leafy Silhouettes

This is a very cute whimsy challenge and I couldn't wait to use this fun squirrel image.
I coated the wild flower chippy in a distress oxide and then stamped a flower image over the top to add more texture. Very simple but effective.

For the leaves I coated in another oxide ink but then rubbed a metallique wax over the top to give it shine.

The frame I decided to spray with a black shimmer ink and the effect was perfect for the layout, simple but a standout.

I solved this CSI case by choosing the colour scheme from the scene and used the inspiration of the woodland creatures for my image photo.
From the evidence I used a border (chipboard) leaves (chipboard) splats, mushrooms, string.
I also created a Haiku for the testimony or Journaling feature. 
It reads.....
Sweet Squirrel Laughing
Collecting Nuts for Winter
Cheeky Sounds Above.

Thanks for visiting the blog today and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
I highly recommend having a play over at CSI and see how you can solve the case too. Plus plenty of inspiration over there.

Catch you all soon, Em xx
