Candy Corn Ants


Yikes, October is flying by... Thought I better get some Halloween cards made before the holiday passes me by. For this card I used the fun image from the Doodle Pantry called Candy Corn Ants.  My image was colored with Copics and I also went over the yellow and orange sections of the "candy corn" with glaze pens.  The background paper is a piece of "faux leather" cardstock that I have been hoarding for ages.  I also dug into some Halloween embellishments leftover from last Halloween.  It always feels great when I create with supplies I have on hand rather than run out and buy new. Besides my image the only new item is my very vanilla seam binding which I dyed and crinkled.

Challenges i used:
If the shoe fits... Scrap It!: FF#51 Holiday challenge :   Pick a holiday, any holiday and make something!
Stamp Something challenge:  Halloween Somethings theme
Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Challenge #10 :  RRR#10 -- Create a Halloween card or treat bag

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
