You know the saying Crafty Friends Are the Best - and it is totally true. I needed a Thank You card for a very special and kind friend I met through my crafty hobby - I just love how you can connect over stamping and make real good friends.
I started this card by stamping these super cute pandas from Reverse Confetti's Miso Happy. It took no time at all to color the panda bears - always a plus with pandas and other black and white creatures like penguins and ninjas for example. I just added a little bit of cool grey for shadows to the white parts and some pinks for the cheeks. Then I drew some white highlights with a white gel pen.
To create a little scene I also stamped the bamboos and the stones and coloured them with alcohol markers, too.
For the hill the pandas standing on I die cut a piece of cardstock with one of the dies of Mama Elephant's Borderline Trios and added some ink blending in green. I also stamped a sentiment from the Miso Happy set on it. The sky I created by ink blending, too.
I wanted to add the word Thanks, too. The die set Many Thanks by Concord & 9th is perfect for that. It is so versatile and you get a lot of possiblities for your money. I die cut the speech bubble from green cardstock matching my hill and the letters from black cardstock to go with the pandas.
Finally the whole scene was framed with a die cut cut with Mama Elephant's Framed Tags.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.
