I feel like I've not made any ATCs for ages so I wanted to whip up a couple to get back into it. A quick watercolour squirrel and nuts Smiley



Yep I've gone nuts for atcs all over again Wink

Your watercolor painting is so ethereal feeling, Phizz. Now I will want to be squirreling away your ATC's. Grin

I really like the outline.  I feel like it defines the nuts nicely.  Makes them pop!  Is that watercolor, too, or ink?
