Don't be a Square challenge
WHAT IS IT?We all know that the square or square-ish (rectangle) card is the most popular card around. But what about all the little non-squares? Today is the day where these little guys shine! So go head and think 'outside the box'.
It's challenge time over at The Greetings Farm blog again. This card gave me a good reason to use all my goodies in my "Asian" box. Yes, I actually have a box labeled "Asian". It's the OCD. I purchased the cards at a scrap sale a year or so ago. Geisha Anya was just the reason I needed to crack them open. I covered them with the paper you use for origami and matched my kimono colors from there. The belt is also origami paper. Her head and flower are popped up with foam tape. This was not my original idea, but after I screwed up the hair on my original but like the kimono I made it work. There are no mistakes, only opportunities to embellish. I colored a new face and cut the head off and popped it up, then added the popped flower for even more dimension. I few dots of stickles on the flower for shine, and voila!
