Hello Blogland! Yes, here I am after quite a long absence. The year-end was quite busy including a change of location for our RV. We decided to do small town for a while. The peace is almost palpable and the silence loud, but we are enjoying it a lot.
Recently I saw that Kris at Imagine That Digistamps
had started a progressive challenge
. I love her stamps and when I saw this cute panda, I had to join. So here is my make.
I wanted the image to be the focus of my card and keep the style completely CAS. I designed the layout of the panel in Silhouette Studio, adding the image into the bottom right-hand corner of my panel and added a sentiment from my Imagine That Digistamp stash. I printed the panel out onto regular cardstock. While coloring on smooth cardstock is quite different to coloring on my favorite drawing paper, it makes for a change.
I colored the digi with my Prismacolor colored pencils. Yes, pandas are not brown and orange – I know. But pandas don’t float in umbrellas either, so… To do the hearts, I challenged myself to go through my pencil swatch chart and make every heart a different color. So none of them are the same. I then added white highlights with a Signo pen and colored the handle stem of the umbrella with a silver gel pen.
Once I had done the coloring, I cut the panel out with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the front of a white cardbase.
