Well, as you have already seen, our theme this month is Picnic/Patriotic Cards or projects. Haven't the projects so far been great? The DT ladies are all so talented! I have made a 4th of July card for you today. Although I have never sent a 4th of July card, I figure it would be fun...lol. Here is what I came up with.Aren't these ants so cute???!!! I used two different ant stamps for this card. There are a lot of cute little ant stamps in the QKR Store too. As soon as I saw these 2 stamps, this idea came to my head. I stamped the images and colored them with watercolor crayons. I then trimmed them down...which was very detailed cutting...ha ha. I used a white CS base, and layered a piece of light blue to be the sky. Then I used some shredder scissors to make grass. I bought these scissors from AVON a while back and have never used them...but I bought them thinking they would make great grass. Next I layered the first ant (Match Stick) on the front of the grass. Then I put the other ant image (Fire Cracker) behind the grass...so he looks like he is walking away. I added a little sponged sun to the corner. I punched out the conversation balloons, and hand wrote on them. I thought what they are saying was funny...lol. The firecrackers remind me of 4th of July. We hear them going off all the time during the week of the 4th..and then some...ha ha. I figure ants are always assumed picnic guests too. The little ant brads I picked up the other day at my LSS. Here is the inside of the card.Well that is all from me today. I will send you off to your next stop on the hop now. Please don't forget to leave comments on each DT Ladies Blog also.
