Bamboo Panda Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone :-D 

My second post today and my 200th blog post! :-D

Today it´s my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Bamboo Panda Card.

Details about my card...

I printed the image on a white cardstock paper. I stretched the image: I draw circles around panda's eyes and lines on a vase. Then I colored the image with colored pencils, fussy cut the image leaving white border around it and added gloss resin to panda's muzzle, on the vase and bamboo, to add dimension to the image and to create glossy accents.

Then I made a panel. I stamped sentiment 'hello' from Jane's Doodles 'Anemone' stamp set on watercoloring paper and colored the panel in Ink smooshing technique for coloring the background. I love this technique!!! :-D I used Stabilo markers, plastic pocket bag, water and bottle sprayer. I added some color on plastic pocket bag, sprayed it with water and smooshed color on the panel. I was adding color by color, couple of layers, drying them between. I don't have heat gun, so I use hairdryer for drying wet papers.

When I was satisfied with colors and pattern, I glued the panel on a white cardstock card base, glued 3-D foams behind the panda image and placed it on the card.

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
