Birthday Ant - One for the Boys

This week the amazing Anna, who is always a huge source of inspiration to me, set the challenge to "One for the boys" at the High Hopes Challenge blog.

Diese Woche setze Anna, die für mich immer eine Quelle an Inspiration ist, die Challenge auf "Eine für Jungs" auf dem High Hopes Challenge blog.

Now isn't this stamp absolutely cool and funny?! I love this High Hopes ant and it was so fast to colour :) I used my water soluble pens, Twinkling H2Os and Spica glitter pens for the colouration. I also added a lot of frosted lace stickles to the cupcake. The sentiment is from the german Whiff of Joy Party and birthday text set. I stamped it on white cardstock and airbrushed the background with the Copic system. I also used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the brown cardstock and a Martha Steward border punch for the zig zag. The background paper is from My Mind's eye "Bella Bella" collection. It is so beautiful!
Ist der Stempel nicht absolut lustig und cool?! Mir gefällt die kleine High Hopes Ameise super gut und sie war so schnell zu colorieren :) Ich habe Aquarellstifte Twinkling H2Os und Spica Glitter Stifte verwendet. Ausserdem ist auf dem Muffin noch jede Menge frosted lace Stickles. Der Text ist von dem deutschen Whiff of Joy Party und Geburtstagstexte Set. Ich habe es auf weissen Cardstock gestempelt und anschließend den Hintergrund mit dem Copic Airbrushing System besprüht. Den braunen Cardstock habe ich mit einem Cuttlebug embossing folder geprägt und den Zig Zack mit einem Martha Steward border Stanzer ausgestanzt. Das Motivpapier ist von My Mind's Eye "Bella Bella" und ist soo schön.
I am also entering this card to the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge with the theme "Buttons Galore" and the Papertake Weekly challenge "Animal Antics".
Thanks for your visit!
