Hey all! I’m back with another card from the Ellen Hutson October release! This one features Lil’ ‘Squatch — ahhhh can’t tell you how happy I was to see this guy in the lineup! You see, my dad is a bigfoot fan, and I needed a birthday card for him — this was perfect!
I started off by coloring those pines with my trusty Daniel Smith Cascade Green — just can’t get enough of this color!
Then I colored the lil’ squatch with my go-to mix for critters: burnt sienna, Monte Amiata sienna and ultramarine blue! The trick here is to vary the shade of the burnt sienna by adding a little touch of ultramarine blue to get a darker brown. Works like a charm! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see a video.
Next I had to stamp some footprints on the back of the envelope — yep, had to be done!
Then to turn this into a birthday card I stamped the inside, too! This sentiment is from the newly released Totally Random Sayings Vol. 3.
I added some confetti to the inside and I asked Dad if any fell out but he said no, he’s on to me! LOL!
I can’t wait to make some more cards with Lil’ Squatch! He’s perfect for masculine cards for guys of all ages. And I can’t wait to color him white to make a yeti, too!
