Teddy Bears Picnic

A favorite challenge of mine is Craft a Scene...I always look forward to their monthly challenge.  The theme for the month of August is "In the Park" with a twist for an extra prize if you can make it a "Picnic in the Park".  I decided to make a card with LOTV's Teddy Bear picnic stamp shown in a park setting complete with ants....what's a picnic without the ants?  I stamped the Teddy Bears on white cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, masked the image and stamped trees from GKD's The Northwood Trees which were bare so I colored in leaves with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.  I colored the bear image with a lot of Copics, sponged the Sky with Memento Summer Sky ink, and colored the grass with pencils and OMS. My ants were drawn in with black glaze pen and black pen. The lady bug stamp from Annabelle Stamps was stamped with black ink onto red cardstock scrap and cut out and attached with a glue dot....added legs and antennae with pen. Added a butterfly brad for more interest. Stamped birds in sky with GKD stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black.   Layered the image on a Red and White Check Pattern Paper and card base of Brown Cardstock  from stash.  Added border sentiment using a scrap of Pattern Paper found in scraps. (Looks crooked in photo but straight in real life.)
