Happy Birthday Panda Style!

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you are having a great week. Mine is rolling right along and I'm happy to say that I am still (at this moment) on track with the 30 Day Coloring Challenge created by the fabulous Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker.  If you are not familiar with this challenge and need a bit of inspiration to get your creativity flowing each day you should check out Kathy's Blog.

I worked on bits and pieces of this card over a couple of days as part of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. After finishing all of the pieces, this card came together perfectly....

On day 16 of the challenge I watercolored my background with Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon and Mowed Lawn. After my card was completely dry I stamped on some bamboo from the Happy Pandas stamp set from My Favorite Things. I also stamped out those adorable little Pandas, balloons and birthday banner from the same set. These were colored with Copic Markers.

On day 17 of the challenge I stamped and colored these pretty presents from the Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set also by My Favorite Things.

Later this afternoon I was able to put my card together, add some sparkle with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and call it done.

I'm going to link this card up over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is called: What's Your Favorite? (technique or product). I have to say my current favorite technique is creating my own watercolor background.  Super easy (even I can do it) and I really love the look. I am using less and less patterned paper these days because I am hooked on this technique.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day and I'll see you soon....
