I Love Pandas

Ever since I was a young girl, I have always loved Pandas. I have received many Panda figures, animals, posters, etc. as gifts throughout the years. And still have them all. I even have a small panda tattoo on my ankle!

Anyway, I bought this stencil set by Plaid many, many years ago. My first intentions was to stencil with paint making pillows, curtains, and framed art. Well, for some reason, I never got to those projects. But I still have all the stencils. Now that I do mostly paper crafts, I can still use these!

I was prompted to break these out because of the 'use stencils' theme at Try It On Tuesday's challenge. This is a large stencil, my card stock is a full 8 1/2" x 11" sheet. I stenciled on the panda using sponges and ink, and added a couple bamboo shoots on the side as well. I wanted to do a little stamping, so the fern images from the Butterfly Basics set worked perfectly.

I got the quote from the back of a Card Maker magazine, and I hand wrote it onto card stock.

Thanks so much for stopping in!

Your Panda is too darn cute, Pam! Great stenciling and although fabulous on the card, I think you need to do a pillow as well! I have so many stencils from when I painted and also for quilts, so I think it is time to pull them out! Happy Weekend!
