Candy Cane Ants


Well, we are down to the wire folks; are you ready?  I'm not quite done but almost... Forgot to buy the candy canes that I always tie on top of packages, ugh!  

This is the last of my Christmas cards, yeah!  This card is one that I will be including with gifts that we exchange with family on Christmas Eve.  The pre-colored image and sentiment are from the sweet Candy Cane Ants set by Doodle Pantry.  Although you can't see it in the photo, I added shading with Copics and used a clear glaze pen on the ants and candy cane. Sorry the ants appear so dark in the photo. I guess my camera was having a bad day!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of your day.  If I don't see your before Sunday, have a wonderful Christmas.
