Mama Elephant: Small Talk

Did you know ants are adorable? Well, you will after you see this new stamp set from Mama Elephant. ;) I love how they are always thinkin' outside of the box. 

My card today has all sort of layers, inspired by my son's ant farm. :)

I build a little scene on a journaling card, die cut from Peek a Frame. One little joyous ant was stamped on top of a log from Woodland Gifts. I used Copics to color the log, ants and shade blue around the scene to make things pop. Next I put in some grass die cut with Grassy Trio and Landscape Trio. I inked in a "ground floor" with a mask made from Landscape Trio and stamped three more ants. Aren't they the best?!

The scene needed a little more color so I added a few layers of journaling cards, die cut with the same Peek a Frame die I used for the scene. I stamped the grey card stock with Zenith Borders to add a little interest. Finally, I mounted the whole thing on a card panel cut from Peek a Frame that was inked up to match the scene.

Now do you like ants? I like these ones for sure!
