Page sketch challenge

Hello there, Pooh here. I've purloined Horace's scrapbook page, he wanted to enter the challenge at Creative Craft World which is a sketch challenge. Here is the original sketch

and here am I, in my smart Soldier uniform, keeping guard on the bear's hunny stash, I got a bit bored of guard duty though and decided to get my picture taken with Horace's interpretation of the sketch.

He used one of our pictures from the zoo, of the red panda having his lunch. He went with the theme of time, to fit in with the clock in the sketch challenge. We had some cog die cuts, which he stained in Walnut distress stain.

He also stained a piece of book page paper, with clock images and text on it, he thought it was too white for this page.

Here is his finished piece, there is journalling to the top left, which says feeding time for the red panda at Banham Zoo.

Won't he be pleased that I've blogged his hard work for him?
With love from the bears.
