Forest Treasures

... for the Craft Artwork Trinchie challenge: Forest. Working with a trinchie format (7.5x7.5cm) is completely new for me but I like it very much. It is small enough to be reltively quick but big enough to elaborate on embellishments!
It is not quite Summer anymore as the stamped background might suggest, the leaves are getting all dressed in their Autumn colours. Some trees are already almost bare, Autumn is progressing fast (sigh). For the background I coloured a Crafty Individual stamp with various Distress Inks and stamped it on slightly textured off-white card. The colouring between the leaves was done using colour pencils with OMS. The edges of the twinchie are distressed with Distress inks and lightly sanded.
All natural elements were collected in the forest and then dried. The squirrel (stamp: Artemio) enjoys itself after having been stamped using a mix of Distress ink Fired Brick and Walnut Stain, cut out and 'improved' with quite a thick layer of Glossy Accents ... which is better visible in this photo
The finishing touch was a bling from my stash to adorn the inside of a little acorn hat, Petra.
