Panda Love

Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge for Jan., Oh I could not resist the adorable Panda- so I bought him!  Inspired by a blogging friend- Donna, who makes the cutest cards with the images from this store!


 I used a background that is made on watercolor paper with the leftover paint from my attempts at watercoloring. Why waste the paints- they are not cheap!  I love the pinks and purples- and was able to match the mauve/pink cardstock-that my sistaer gave me from Tuesday Morning.  I used a Mod Stitched rectangle die for the image, copics to color and a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to add shimmer.

I have a few friends in the About Oriental Stamping Yahoo group that may get a card with this adorable Panda if I have time to whip up a few more cards : )

We visited San Diego over New Years, and saw this adorable Panda at the SD Zoo : )

So cute Shelly! I think the panda this month is one of my favorites. You might be seeing him again on my blog too. Thanks for the shout out. It;s great that you are enjoying your water color class and using the paints for other projects. Love the color combo. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
