I adore Doodle Pantry images and was a DT member for quite a while.  I wanted to join the Doodle Pantry Challenge #21 and Send a Smile 4 Kids: criteria (children, CAS, Fall colors,flat for shipping) Cute Fall/Halloween. I decided using the camouflaging die cuts technique would add some depth and interest. It's was my first time using the technique.  I can't wait to try again with much larger letters.

I used Doodle Pantry Balloon Ants set.  I masked off one ant, then I added the same image but smaller to help give dimension.  I used Doodle Pantry matching digital paper for the balloons.  I colored the larger ants with copics. There are 4 layers of the word "happy".

    Love your balloon ants. This was one of my first purchases from DP. I've seen those camouflage sentiments before - but have no clue how to do it. It blends perfectly! Love the addition of the little ants inside too.
