The ants go marching....

one by one hurrah, hurrah.
Now that I have that little tune stuck in your head....here is the fun sneak peek of next weeks' Kim Hughes release! All I could think of when I saw these little ants was them carrying off my picnic lunch. There are a lot of fun pieces to this set but I am showing you a couple of my favorite images.
First off, that tree! See the possibilities...the paper piecing you could do!
Then the food, the watermelon in particular...love that!

Here is a close up of one of my fun details on this card. The plaid picnic blanket...yes, it's fabric...stitched onto my card. I also wanted a few of the ants directly on the blanket. I stamped them and they weren't as solid as I wanted....
No matter, just took my copic marker and filled them in!
See the streaky look on the tree trunk. After I had colored the tree trunk I took my blender pen and swiped it up and down to create a little texture.

So next THURSDAY is the release! Here are all my card deets:

Oh this reminds me of a Yogi Bear video my brother and I loved when we were kids. The ants marched off with Yogi's picnic... anyone know what I am talking about?!

Sorry I have not been by in a long while...I finally figured out how to follow my favorite blogs on my blogger dashboard (I used to have you and the others bookmarked), so I am hoping I will be able to see your lovely cards ad leave comments more often.
