Chinese New Year Panda Card II (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

This is my second post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down, or follow this link.

Today it's my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Chinese New Year Panda Card II.

I used super cute 'Chinese New Year Panda' from 2013 January Panda Releases . This is my second card with this cute Panda. If you like, you can see the first one here and here. :o)

Details about my card...

Image is paper pieced.

I printed 4 images on a white cardstock paper. I draw circles around panda's eyes and colored it's muzzle with black permanent pen, colored a lantern with red colored pencil, fussy cut pieces I needed, colored edges with black marker and glued all pieces together. To create glossy accents, I covered lantern and panda's muzzle with clear gloss resin.

Using MS Word, I wrote sentiment in a Text Box (font white, background black), printed it, cut  it in a banner shape, colored edges with black marker and covered whole banner with clear gloss resin. Surface is crackled. This happened during drying and have no idea how it got crackled, but I LOVE it! :o)

For a card base, I used white cardstock paper. I splattered front panel with black Tempera Color mixed with water. To add more dimension to this one layer card, I glued both, image and sentiment, on 3-D foams and placed them on card. At the end, I added couple enamel stickers to brighten up my card. :o)

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 132 mm (4" x 5 1/4").
