Computer Ants by Doodle Pantry

I have a fun card to share with you today!
I made this for our Stamps R Us Bugs & Embossing challenge that kicks off today and runs for the next two weeks.  Our wonderful sponsor is Doodle Pantry and our team had the fun of working with some of Laurie's cute images.  

I used the Doodle Pantry set Computer Bugs and colored with Copic markers BG0000, BG10, BG11, T5, T3, T2.  My layout is a "test" sketch by Julie at Operation Write Home.  I love sketches so I hope it was okay that I used it.  I added a touch of embossing and my card was ready to go.

The cardstock colors are Via Vellum Basic Black, Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow & Aqua Mist and of course Neenah Solar White.  

I made a second card for the Doodle Pantry blog using the cute Computer Ants.

I wondered what red ants would look like...
Again I colored with Copic markers E59, R59, R37, T3, T2, T1.  
My layout was mostly trying to figure out how to fit the large image on my card and show it off.  I had to sleep on it.  

I added the clickity, Click sentiment.  To cover the seam I used the strip of Basic Grey & Cranberry and thought a line of metal dots would help bring it all together.  I matted the image on Stampin' Up! Basic Grey and the Cranberry cardstock is made by, it went through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I hope you'll join us for our Bugs & Embossing challenge at the Stamps R Us challenge blog and go visit Laurie at the Doodle Pantry too, she has so many cute "bug" images!

So VERY cute, Jan! And you did a great job using the red Copics on the ants (that's one colour I just can't master with Copics).
