A Little Note from an Ant

Happy Friday! 

Earlier this week I had a student come over for some crafting time. Throughout the school year we would chat about projects and she was curious to learn more, so I spoke with her mom and said I would love to show her some techniques. I let her explore with water colors and distress inks. We had a great time!

This background is what I had created when I showed her how to do blending with distress inks. I actually had started with the green on the top and then decided if I rotated it I could make a night sky.

The ant with apple is by Miss Kate Cuttables. He is popped up along with the white stars on foam dots. The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps ~ More Mini Messages and glitter silver skittles by Carri in the other lower corner.

I added Wink of Stella clear glitter to create a sparkle on my stars.
