Panda Love

Hi, here's another card I made on World Cardmaking Day.  I used the sketch from Fusion and the monochromatic theme at Colour Me to come up with this card:



I used a new-to-me set called Pandamonium, which has the most adorable little pandas.  I used the bow-tie from the Honey Bunny set to class up my panda a bit, because of course he's out to impress his lady friend :)  I lightly colored him with a cool gray copic marker to give him some shading.  I then covered him in Wink of Stella.

The envelope was stamped and colored on a white panel then I stamped the sentiment and cut around both.  

The background is colored embossing paste and the Tim Holtz Rays stencil.  It represents the square element on the sketch.



Thanks for visiting.  I hope you had a wonderful and creative World Cardmaking Day!  Because I'm using Mama Elephant stamps, I'm also entering this card into their October Anything Goes challenge.  NB:  I also just realised that I originally chose a love theme for the Curtain Call challenge, so I'm linking up there as well.  








Products used:

Stamps:  Pandamonium, Honey Bunny (ME)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Calypso Coral
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Accessories:  Rays Stencil (Tim Holtz), embossing paste, circle stitched mats (Lil Inkers),Wink of Stella, Copic R22, C1
