Panda Love at Gerda Steiner

This is the first time I have had a go at the progressive challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs but I could not resist this cute panda.


Materials used: 
Gerda Steiner Designs – Panda In Love  (free if you played in December’s challenge)
floral designer paper from stash
silver mirri card
pink card
X-Press It card
Copic pens
sentiment die
heart die
15cm square white card blank

The card and designer paper are layered up as in the photo. The image is coloured in then die cut with a heart die. The sentiment is die cut from a scrap of silver card.

I made the background by colouring it pink then using a cotton bud dipped in colourless blender ink to make the circles.

Thank you for dropping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
