MFT Sketch Challenge | Bear Hugs

Hello there, it's Wednesday so that means it is time for another MFT Sketch Challenge! As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use the pandas from the new Panda Pals set.

I started off my card by stamping the panda in the tree, as well as the sun and cloud image from the MFT Panda Pals Stamp Set on to white cardstock using MFT Extreme Black Ink. I then coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section). They were then cut using the MFT Panda Pals Die-namics and set aside while I worked on the background.
I took a 4.25" x 4.25" panel of white cardstock and drew faint lines on to it, to divide the piece into four. I then placed a circle die from the MFT Stitched Circle Stax Die-namics set against the centre lines that I drew. I did that four times to get the four circles. I then cut a piece of white cardstock the same size and using the MFT Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, blended Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink on top to create the sky. This piece was then added to an A2 card base made from MFT Limelight Cardstock with tape runner.
I then adhered the circle piece on top with foam tape. I took the panda image and added him to the card with a combination of tape runner and foam tape. The sun and cloud piece was added with foam tape. I then took the sentiment from the MFT Bear Hug Bunch Stamp Set and stamped it on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied detail white embossing powder and heat set. This was then cut in a strip using the MFT Skinny Strips Die-namcs and added this to the card with tape runner. To finish off, I added a few Clear Round Drops with MFT On-Point Precision Glue.
