Crafty Gals Outside the Box

I am part of a blog group called Crafty Gals. On the 5th of every month, we have a challenge. Athina is our hostess this month,

Here are her instructions:

Think Outside the Box!

I challenge you to make a project with no squares or rectangles (not even the base of a card or scrapbook layout). Since we have already stepped outside the box, lets take another step. Try a technique that you have not tried before. It is always fun to learn something new and expand our creativity. Have fun with it! I can't wait to see what you create!


Well, let me tell you... it is not easy to make a card without a square or rectangle. LOL!

Here goes:


He's a cute little guy.


Some things I've never done before:

1. Drawn a scar onto a card
2. Embossed a shape and used it for a facial feature (nose) - and drawn stitching on it
3. Whittled down an oval punch for eyes (EEK! That was tough)
4. Used the top note die for the entire card base.





Oops! I sure hope we weren't suppsed to use a stamp/image on our cards... this one doesn't have one.


Now, be sure to go to the other Crafty Gal blogs to see what they've made. You can find the links in my left sidebar.

Hugs!!!
