Party Paws - Sneak Peek with Texture

My design today was inspired by two of my stampin' sisters who love coloring as much as I do. :o)  I'm featuring one of the new adorable Party Paw pandas coming out next week at Crafter's Companion.

My color selection was inspired by a card my DT Sister Khristen did. You can see her cute, cute card here.  I'm also using a coloring method inspired by a video Jennie just did - you can see that here.

I started by coloring the present.   I layered color starting with the lightest shade and ending with the darkest - just filled in color completely. Next, I tapped a very light shade CR3 randomly to move, or pull out, some of the color creating a pattern or texture on the wrapping paper. I repeated with the blender.

Next, I used the coloring method I learned from Jennie in her video.  After it dried, I laid a piece of fabric that had been sprayed with alcohol over each area of the panda where is fur was to create a furry look.

I cut him out an pop him up on a wobble so he could dance with his present.

On the inside, I used a sentiment that came with the set layered on a piece of the design paper.

Crafter's Companion has had several new beautiful images. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog, as well as visit the Crafter's Companion DT members. Their latest designs are showing on the side of my blog.
