We have to be real careful with our food today, though, because we're talkin' bears. Not teddy bears either....we're talkin' the kind that live and hunt in the forest.
Since I don't have any bear images (except for the cute, cuddly teddy bears), I decided to build a log cabin for our tea party today, nestled snuggly in the pretty pine trees.
Oh, you should also know that Bertie is on the loose and JoJot guessed right: she's flinging pine cones today and man, oh, man can that sap create some mighty sticky situations. I think she's just planning to fling the pinecones at the bears, but ya never really know with Bertie around. She gets to influencing Maxie (marilynprestonn), too, and those two can.....well, let's just say really liven up a party. So, you might want to wear your hats made for the woods today because you certainly do not want sap in your hair!!
I also made this card for a challenge issued by Francie G of my Doubledog Dare Challenge (DDC) group to make a card/project that is something we'd enjoy doing....especially after the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Of course, I'd love to be stamping and to me there's no better place for inspiration than snuggled all cozy like in a cabin in the woods inspired by nature!
My scene was colored with Copic markers. The sky was sponged. After I cut out my square rectangle frame in my Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the pinecone images in versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then used sponge daubers to wipe on Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Sahara Sand, and River Rock ink to reflect the inspiration teapot. I wiped off the excess Chocolate Chip from the clear embossed pinecones. I matted More Mustard behind the cut out rectangle and adhered my colored scene.
I hope you'll join us at the tea party and the DDC challenges today. You can find them in the challenge forums at Splitcoaststampers!
