I looked at quite a few photos of panda bears before creating this big fellow. I found many images where Pandas were hanging on top of large branches and really loved that idea. So my panda is lazily posed on a big tree branch.
The branch was created by trimming down my tree die until it seems to have the right fit. Sorry but I didn't take a photo of just the branch. I decided not to try and make bamboo leaves and instead chose a background stamp to serve the same purpose. Again my Kanji greeting of Friendship is one associated with pandas.
