Life's A Picnic!

I just love this new set by H & M Stamps called It's Picnic Time .... it is going to be released later today (Sunday 25th May). The sentiment & the giant sandwich are both from this set.

When I first saw this giant sandwich I immediately thought about my ant stamps ... I haven't used them for ages and what is a picnic without ants right hehe! First up I masked off the sign the ants normally carry using sticky tape and then stamped just the ants onto my white card. I then stamped the grass along the bottom of the card and the clouds to the top portion of the card. I stamped the sandwich onto a scrap of white card and cut it out and attached it onto my card so that it appears the ants are carrying it.

The red card on the base of this card has been stamped using Cornish Heritage Farm's dots & circles backgrounder in black ink. The sentiment is stamped onto white card and punched out using an oval punch.
