Anyway, I registered on Dover Pictura, and for doing that got 3 digital sheets free - my choice. One of the sheets was a bunch of Pandas, so cute. So played with them and cut them out with my electronic cutter. Checked my scrap bin of decorated papers and came across this dry brush acrylic paint background I did eons ago which looked good with the pandas. Cardstock painted with green and when dry, dry brushed a cream acrylic paint. So paired it up with another green textured off cut and on a cream toned card base (5"w x 7"h)
The white in the pandas is actually a cut out and showed the background which I didn't like, so penciled in the shapes and painted the area with white acrylic paint.
I thought pandas were so cute and playful and seem to get into mischief... so immediately thought of the Naughty & Nice sentiment.
Stamped my sentiment "Naughty Nice" (Quietfire Design) on white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, trimmed down and trimmed around the panda image, sponged a bit of Distress green using my dirty green sponge, then adhered to card. Adhered the pandas. Then stamped the sentiment at the bottom (part of this year's Xmas stamp set from Quietfire Design, had a flourished Xmas tree above the words which didn't work with my image) with the black and clear embossed.
As a final touch added 2 red circle rhinestones.
And it fits for these challenges:
