Party Panda Sends Bear Hugs!

We're still celebrating another good year for Holley. Please read all about it here! Holley's good friend, Sandra Caldwell of BabyCakesDND, has a few images on sale for us to use in a challenge on Holley's blog. We may enter 3 projects. For my third and last entry, I used the Party Panda #2427.

I enjoyed creating my first layered background using the app Procreate. The photos come from Pixabay, a free image site. I started with the "real" photo of a bamboo forest, then I layered a PNG image of a drawn bamboo forest over top of that. The branch was made in that program as well. I sent these to my computer to resize and print. Then, I cut out and popped the branch over the  background so that the little panda had something to sit on!
I added a little tag with a sentiment from Paper Smooches, Chubby Chum Pals, a tiny bow, a couple of leaves from the original stamp set, and a big heart.

Thanks for visiting. Be sure to visit Sandra's Etsy shop for this image and Holley's blog to join in on the celebration. Both are linked above.

    1. The background took hours, Julie, but I'm learning more each day with Procreate. And, I loved every minute! Thanks!
