Let's Talk About Clarence + $1400 in Prizes!

Hey friends! Lydia here today to help celebrate the Altenew anniversary!

Because I have recently struck up a friendship with a squirrel, who I have named Clarence, I had to make a squirrel card today. 

The image is from the cutest little set, which also has chipmunks! Fun fact - my first word was "chippink" when I saw a chipmunk, so I'm a little partial to critters. 

Clarence waits for me every day with his little paws on my front steps. I think he thinks he wills me into existence with his mind - because he just sits there and stares at the door until I come out. Sometimes I see him on our camera, but sometimes I just go out and there he is. 

So this set was so perfect for recreating my daily scene. 

First, I used Limestone ink and a small blending brush with Post-it tape to create the steps.

The stamp just happens to have Clarence in his exact pose, so I stamped him in Milk Chocolate on a scrap of cardstock and cut him out with the matching dies.

Then I used two brown, a grey, and a reddish brown Polychromos pencil to color him in, and arranged him in the begging position on the step. So adorable! The sentiment is from the same set. You can see a video of Clarence below.
