Sweet Panda from Ike's Art

Next to the last day of the month and here I am trying to finish all I want to get done.  This adorable panda is the June Progressive Freebie on the Ike's Art Fan Page! on FB.  To be honest, I've had him colored for at least a week, but I couldn't decide what to do with him.  I wanted it to be special because I love this guy and took quite awhile coloring him with Copics and doing a little work with a Memento pen.

Here's a closeup.  Ike is so generous with her freebies, also offering one for each challenge on her Ike's World Challenges Blog and SYUP (cats only) Challenge Blog.  Many more fabulous digis in her Ike's Art Zibbet Shop, too.

So I was bummed that I did have a bamboo die or digi or stencil so I Googles panda habitat and there were many pics of just jungles.  Then I remembered my X-Cut Build-a-Scene forest dies and went to town.  There's the side view all popped up.  I also added some vines with my Weeping Willow branches die from Memory Box.  The DP mat is from the DCWV Safari Kids Stack.  The sentiments are Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers.

I'm also adding this to the Ike's World June Challenge #109 AG/optional Inspired by a Song  ("Panda" by Jefferson Airplane), the DL.Art June Linky ChallengeLil Patch of Crafty Friends # 84 AG,  The Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG, The Outlawz Festive Friday AG, The Outlawz Saturday Paper ala Mode FramedSimon Says Wednesday AG (4/5), Jo's Scrap Shack FFC#240 AG 2/3, Crafty Gals Corner #168 AG, Scrapy Land Challenge #92 AG w/brands that SL sells TTRCD Week of June 26 AG, Morgan's Art World #06 AG, The World Wide Open Design Team Challenge #6, and Simply Papercraft #59 AG.
