I sometimes get asked to make very specific cards and at one of my fundraisers I was asked if I could make a red squirrel card for a class teacher. At first I thought that I might do a cross stitched card but then realised that I just wouldn't have time, so I did a hunt for an appropriate digi image to use.
I found a lovely image at Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and with the addition of some holly stamped using a Kanban stamp I made this card -
The background paper is from Craft Creations and I watercoloured the image with Derwent watercolour pencils.
I then decided that this would make a nice card for my Dad for Christmas so this is the version that I made for him using the same digi image.
The mats were cut using Spellbinder nestabilities and the sentiment is by Stampin' Up.
This is the first time that I have used a digi image for my cardmaking and I would certainly use them again if I didn't have the right stamp for the card that I wanted to make.
I am entering the bottom card into this month's Scrapology Card challenge which is to use leaves, leaf shapes and colours on your card.
