I don't normally like finding ants in my spring garden but this one is just too cute to dislike. :-D The image is from Sasayaki Glitter and it's the freebie for their latest Progressive challenge on their Facebook page.
I started by using the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2,
although I took a bit of liberty with the shapes.
The image is hand colored with ProMarkers and I played around with my newest set of border dies from Spellbinders. I love the amazing shapes I got and the delicate embossing that was possible on each piece. I layered all the pieces onto a kraft card base (which is actually recycled from a cracker box insert!) after I added the ribbon. The sentiment was printed and hand cut, and I added a tiny gem to each of the four corners. Complex looking but very simple in design.
Here we are on the second day of Spring and I'm suffering all the symptoms of a severe winter cold. Stuffy sinuses, runny nose, cough, chest congestion ...Yuck! Colds shouldn't be allowed during spring or summer. I think I'll talk to someone about passing a law! Who's with me? We'll get a petition going. In the meantime, Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
