I'm nuts over you

Hi guys, Liz here with my project for our Autumnal colour challenge this week, I've used this adorable Squirrel and woodlands set,

I added some scrunched up tissue to a piece of Tando 6x6 chipboard piece, then added a  cut tree die from my stash, I then coloured the background in prima bloom sprays,

The squirrels have stippled texture sand on their bodies done with a hard brush and modeling paste on their tails, put on thickly then I used a knife to add lines for texture,
The bodies were coloured using Deco Art Burnt Umber and Burnt Sienna and Titan buff mixed for the tails, then a lighter mix of burnt Sienna over the bodies again,
The Acorn caps have modeling paste stippled on, then when dry I added some Burnt Umber, the acorns, leaves and mushrooms were painted using Yellow oxide and quinacridone Burnt orange mixed,
I also added some die cut leaves at the base of the design, painted with the same paints,
