I'm Nuts about you

Hi guys, I'm back today with a DT project for Tando Creative,
This week it's a colour challenge with autumnal  colours so I couldn't resist using this fabulous
squirrel and woodland set,

I started off with a Tando Creative 6x6 piece of board which i covered with scrunched tissue, I then used a tree die from my stash cutting it out of water colour paper and stuck it onto the middle of the design, I then sprayed the back with Prima Bloom sprays, 
I used Deco Art media texture sand  paste on the squirrels bodies, stippling the body with an old stipple brush and the tails have a thicker layer of Modeling paste on, which I ran a knife along to give the tail effect, when dry I painted the bodies in Burnt Umber then when dry a lighter mix of the Burnt Umber (a little water added) and Burnt Sienna with Titan Buff mixed for the tail,
The acorns have a hint of stippled texture sand paste on the caps, then when dry I coloured them with Burnt Umber,
The leaves and acorn bottoms were painted with yellow oxide and quinacridone burnt orange mixed,
Mushrooms have fluid inks Titan Buff and yellow oxide on them then a layer of liquid applique for the spots, the only other thing I've added are a few leaf die cuts again coloured with the inks,

The colour theme,

Tando Creative items used:
Deco Art -

Do come and join us in the fun, for the chance to win some awesome Tando Creative goodies,
