Ants at Play & A Birdie Friend DT Entries *Corrected*

I often browse my favorite digital stamp sites, and recently came across a DT Call over at AI Factory. As many of you know I love AI Factory. So I was elated when I saw their DT Call. I nearly missed the deadline tho, as I penciled it in my planner on the wrong Wednesday! Grrrr! Thank goodness I had a peek there this evening to see how many entires there was, as I noticed the deadline was TONIGHT!! OMGosh! I busted a move to make 2 cards. I really only needed to make one, but I wanted to go the extra mile =)

***Correction*** The Challenge deadline was last night, NOT the DT Call. You still have time to apply for the DT. Read the details here.

The theme for the Challenge/DT Call is "Garden Party"
It was so much fun to play with Spring & Summer Digi's for a change.
I bought this bird a couple months ago, and this was the perfect time to color her up!
I used my prismacolor pencils, and then added some flocking to her feathers.
I think that was the perfect added touch!

I think it is important to play in other challenges when you are part of a DT,
in order to help expose the company you are designing for so I entered in
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch Challenge #75
This really was a fun sketch =)

For the second card I entered in the AI Factory Challenge/DT Call
I chose these adorable ants! Isn't this the cutest image?
I was going to use a "Hurry Up! It's MY Turn" sentiment, 
but settled for "Have a Beautiful Day"... I am wishing I would
have created the first sentiment tho.  

I used some liquid pearls to the water to make it pop and some
Sakura black glaze to the ants hands and feet so they stand out
a little more too.
Colored with Prismacolor Pencils again, and Stickles on the flowers.

I entered this card in:
Sketch Saturday - Week #128

Wish me luck! I would LOVE to make the AI Factory DT!
