Neat & Tangled Release: Nuts for You!

Nancy Damiano Cardmaking Neat and Tangled Nuts for You

Welcome to the January Neat and Tangled release week! This is a new team and craft for me and I'm so  excited to get started. I like challenges and especially ones that kick in at the start of a year. Let's get started with Nuts for You. I tend to lean towards designs that are whimsical and clever so I'm in love with these little squirrels.


I've been practicing with Copic coloring since this summer, taking classes and practicing, practicing, and practicing some more. That's the real key. Well, that and loving color theory (which I do!).

@nancydamiano Neat and Tangled Nuts for You Stamping Nancy Damiano

Three little squirrels are layered on a background of Distress Ink. The splash of color and greeting at the bottom ground the cluster. The squirrel in the center is glued down flat, while the other two are lifted with Pop Dots. This gives the card great dimension. I drew in a squiggly line connecting the center squirrel and the floating heart to tie in the background design.
