Whipper Snapper Ahhh...Nuts!


I have a just for fun card to share with you today!

I was gifted stamped Whipper Snapper images from my friend Cindy and every once in awhile I get the chance to color one.  I love them and can't wait till I have time to color them all!

I thought this one was going to be a bit of a challenge combining all the earth toned Copic markers.  I tried not to think too much about it and just started with the acorns and kept going.  
Here are the Copic colors I used:

E7, E17, E30, E31, E33, E35, E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, W3, W5, W7, B0000, B00, B01, YG01, YG03, YG05

The peanuts are a combination of E40's, the walnut and squirrel a combination of E30's, the acorns I'm unsure but I know you can duplicate them with a little experimentation.

I kept the layout simple, this is a stamp that is on the large size.  Cardstock colors are Via Vellum Black, Stampin' Up! Green Galore, Sorbet Ice Blue and Copic X Press It.
I love the sentiment and have just the missed birthday for this very card!
