I've used a grey/brown coloured cardstock because that was what I had at home and I thought it was pretty squirrel coloured but use whatever colours you are able to get - squirrel coloured is hard to source! Yellows and reds would also work well.
I've left my squirrel blank once I finished painting it but if you liked you could draw a face in.
