Bear With Me...

This week at Card Crafter's Circle, we are creating SHAPED CARDS (no squares or rectangles) ... I had another two images from one of our sponsors Stamp Art Design by Kathryne which I just had to create with!  And what a record post for me ... I don't think I've ever posted with two creations on the one post, nor entered in so many challenges! It must be a 'beary' good week for bears.... good thing I had these to create with! Here's my first.....

Ingredients: cardbase; Promarkers; Waterpen...

This was a simple card to make... I printed the image large, coloured him with markers and a waterpen, adding some shadow here and there.  Using Promarker Aquas gives a 'watercolour' feel to him, perhaps a little fur too!  I fussy cut the image, loving the sweeping curved cuts!  I then adhered him to the brown cardbase, making sure that the card would hinge on the left (at his arms and hips).  Then fussy cut that too! Now he's a free standing Teddy Bear!

This creation is entered in to these challenges:
Pattie's Creations #49 Animal/Insect
The Poodles Parlour Anything Goes
Sweet N Sassy SNSDC65 Beary Special
Di's Digi Designs  No Squares (18 Aug)
Songbird Challenges  #1Anything Goes (18 Aug)
Crafty Calendar Challenge Teddy Bear Parade (31 Aug)

My second card will be in the very next post... so bear with me (why is it that I'm compelled to share such dreadful word play?)... There's still time to enter in our SHAPED CARD challenge at Card Crafter's Circle... come on over! Thanks for peepin'!

This is just absolutely adorable! I love that this card is perfect for so many occasions - it could be used for birthdays, or to say "I love you" or "I miss you" or "sending you a hug".
Thanks for joining in the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge this week! :)
