Spring Panda

Today's image is one I've actually had for a while but, like much of my rubber, he's been neglected while I play with new stash!  But today he's having an outing in a Springtime themed Mother's Day card.  I've stamped him in pale grey ink and watercoloured him.

Here's a bit more of a close up of my little panda...

... and although I've shown you this before, I've also included a mini-tutorial on how I've coloured some of the orange flowers using some a drops of DI reinker in a few drops of water.  I dip the flower tip into the diluted ink, just for a few seconds, and let them dry (or if you're impatient like me, dry them with a hairdryer!)

Card Recipe:

From Dies To Die For:

From The Ribbon Girl:
  • Watercoloured with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers
  • The Langton Watercolour paper
  • Typed Sentiment (Wendy Medium font)
  • Vellum
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting
