Where've you been hiding?


OMGosh isn't this little ant peeking out too cute! This card is made from new and recycled materials! I love that i am using up some scraps and pieces parts from around my craft room! The tree actually came to me from someone else but was a little damaged in transit so I recycled it using a little glue here and there to keep it together! The background was cuttlebugged who knows how long ago and was in my scrap bin, I just edged it here for this card. The other layering piece is a bit of the Painted Mesh TJ technique I was doing not that long ago. The little ant well he is new! He wa part of my recent TAC party purchase and I think he is too cute. I colored the rock and grass with my Copics and trimmed it out to mount under the tree on the card front. The sentiment is also from the same TAC set and I just layered that with another small piece of the Painted Mesh background that was left, added a little snippet of ric rac from Really Reasonable Ribbon and called it complete! LOL! Enjoy!
