‘Ant’ you grateful?

It’s a Photo Inspiration challenge at Craft Your Passion this week.We have Doodle Pantry as our fabulous sponsor too.So head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

Here’s the photo :

For my card I’ve used the delightful Falling Ants  from Doodle Pantry.It’s actually a set and comes with 3 main images,2 flowers and 4 sentiments!Such value for money.I’ve coloured this image with Koh-I-Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils on kraft card and set them with a fixative.He’s been cut out with Eastern Ovals Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies.The card base has been cut from kraft too with the bottom corners rounded with a Siesta Large Corner Rounder Punch.The edges of have been inked with Tangelo,Potter’s Clay and a teeny amount of Rich Cocoa.The papers came with a freebie calendar from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine last year(!) This has been layered onto some orange and  brown card from my stash.I’ve used a EK Success Large  Edger Hawaiian Flower Punch on the bottom layer.The sentiment from the same set as the ant image has been positioned and printed straight onto the base.I think this could be used in many different ways to express different kinds of thankfulness.Coupled with this cute image I’d like it to convey how we should appreciate the enjoyable times we get to spend with those closest to us,our family.Some natural raffia,copper brads and a copper Creative Expressions Craft Stapler Daisy have been used to embellish.
