Panda-Monium


When Create with TLC gave away this adorable sentiment earlier in the week, it inspired me to rout through my unmounted stamps and make this card.  Seems like everyone in my circle of friends is having a busy, crazy summer. Thought the card would come in handy.

I started with a base of soft sand Pure Luxury card stock.  Used scraps of black and white PL for my layers, after printing out my sentiment.  I masked off the sentiment, and used brush markers on an Inkadinkado oriental stamp set called Asian Influences.  I used Tea Dye Distress ink on my edges and then sponged them again with Spanish Olive VersaMagic ink.  My panda is an unknown unmounted.  My accents are hemp twine, and MS butterfly, and a vintage bamboo button which I attached with a jump ring.  Not sure about that butterfly, so I might change it out. My inside sentiment is from Mail Expressions.  

Hope you weekend is perking along nicely!
