Red Squirrel…

So red squirrels are pretty darn cute, but unfortunately they’re not doing so well in Scotland anymore. There’s now only 120,00 left (75% of the UKs population), it was estimated that there used to be 3.5 million. Why such the drop? Well, they got heavily bullied by the larger, non-native gray squirrels out of their territories, then they started catching squirrel pox (thought to be brought in by the grays who aren’t even affected by it), and now cases of leprosy is spreading! Yikes, poor guys.

For this design, I used the fish scale stencils that I received for review from Born Pretty Store – which you can find here. I thought that the pattern they left behind sort of resembled pinecones?
