I had already done this card, so it is my first contribution to getting into crafting again. Red squirrels are some of my favourite animals of the UK, and I have many happy memories of sitting under trees on both Brownsea Island (where scouting started) and on the Isle of Wight, watching these beautiful animals scampering around up in the trees and on the ground. They are our native squirrels, which are under threat from the disease carried by the invader grey squirrels, and also from loss of habitat. They are so much prettier than the greys, too.
I don't have a stamp for red squirrels (not sure if there is one anyway) so I drew this pair playing in the trees, and coloured them with my favourite Derwent watercolour pencils.
I was not sure I could post this card today, as my craft computer is undergoing surgery and recovery, but, fortunately, I had remembered to back all my craft files on the other computer. So it was just a case of finding where I had saved it.
Remember that to take part in this Craft A Scene challenge for June, you must show a REALISTIC forest animal in its environment. I chose to draw mine because I had not suitable stamp, but the medium you choose is your choice. Come on and join us.
