Kissing Pandas for Valentine's Day

Welcome friends!

Today I am bringing you a Valentine's card with non traditional colors.  I love spicing things up that way and trying new color combos for holidays!  I used the ever cute pandas from Mama Elephants Panda stamp & die set.

To start my card I trimmed 110lb white cardstock to create a 5x7 card base.  I then trimmed some watercolor paper to fit a little smaller over the front.  Next, I inked the watercolor paper with Tim Holtz oxide inks in tumbled glass, broken china, mustard seed, & squeezed lemonade and splattered with white paint using a wet paint brush.

While I let that dry, I stamped the pandas with black ink and die cut using the coordinating dies that come with the stamp set!  Yeah for all in one!  I lined them up on the bottom and then stamped the ever adorable sentiment and then pop dotted the pandas next to it. 

For the lanterns, I stamped and die cut them from the Mama Elephant Panda stamp & die set and colored with copic markers.  I then lined them up and added the black and white twine with glue dots to create the line.  Next, I pop dotted each lantern along the twine and glue dotted the mint sequins under each lantern.

For the final touches, I added my shimmer on each lantern using the wink of stella and a little silver heart I cut from my cameo between the two kissing pandas.

I wish everyone a crafty weekend and I hope I inspired you try some new color combos yourself!
