Still Bearing with Me?

So this post I'll try not to share any wordplays and puns... in sharing my second extra creation (or should I just say my third creation) in our Card Crafter's Circle SHAPED CARDS (no squares or rectangles) challenge (that was a mouthful!)...

I'm sharing here a brand new release from one of our sponsors Stamp Art Design by Kathryne which I just had to create with!  Definitely a record post day for me ... I rarely managed two creations posts on the same day! (I had to split the posts for challenge entries....)

I was so excited to create with the Little Bear - Canoe Adventure image ... because it's a new release!

Ingredients: cardbase; hessian fabric; Promarkers, SU Markers, Glitter Pens, Metallic Pens; WaterPen...

To create a tee-pee card, I cut the cardbase on an angle, so the fold of the card forms the left hand side of the teepee.  I covered the card with hessian, pulled some threads at the top, and trimmed the edges. With some remaining long threads, I tied a simple knot, fixed it at the top of the card for detail, and added some marker colour to some threads.I coloured the image with ProMarker Aquas, SU Markers and a waterpen, and embellished with glitter pens/metallic pens.  I fussy cut the image, then fitted and fixed it to the card base.

This creation is entered in to these challenges:
