You Rock Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

This is my 700th blog post!! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this CAS (clean and simple), You Rock Card. :o)

For my card I used a SUPER CUTE Kitty Bee Designs 'iPod Panda' digital image. Isn't he ADORABLE!!! :o) My panda is a he on this card, as it will be a card for a boy. :o)

How I made my card....

First I made a layout on my computer. Then I printed the panda three times: one on a watercolor paper, second on a white cardstock paper scrap and third directly on a cardstock paper panel. I left images to dry over the night.

Next day, I prepared card base first. I stamped the sentiment on the panel, colored printed panda with black marker and glued the panel on a white top folded card base.

Then I fussy cut the panda printed on the cardstock scrap, colored him with black marker and traced edges with same marker.

Next up was the panda printed on the watercolor paper. I stamped tiny circles around panda's eyes and colored his eyes and muzzle with black fine liners. I colored the panda in watercolor technique using Stabilo Fibre Tip Pens (markers). These colors are so vivid and I particularly like blue tones I used to color my panda. :o)

After drying, I fussy cut the panda and traced edges with black marker. Then I drew white dots, highlights and faux stitches with white gel pen and white pigment ink. I got idea to drew stitches from an adorable tag shared over on Kitty Bee Designs blog. Find it here.

Three pandas ready to be glued together. :o)

I glued together two pandas: watercolored and black colored one. I did this to make the image thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

Lastly, I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the colored panda and glued him over the black panda on the card base and my card was finished. I love how I colored this panda. :o)
