Friday, Oct. 23 - ssnotime110 - Feeling Square - Today's challenge has to do with shape -- squares. NO rounded corners on todays card -- so that means NO oval or circular punches or die cuts -- only square shapes. The card must be square, any size, as long as it's square and
all layers added must have squared corners. Only your small embellishments can be round or oval -- so you can use buttons, brads, primas, etc. as embellishements, even though they may be round. So if you're feeling a little square, today is YOUR day!!! Have fun!!!
OK, I'm not totally sure I completely followed the directions--my ornaments are not square. But they're more or less paper pieced onto the background paper, so maybe Sharon will let them slide?
I stamped the ornaments--from a Flourishes' set called All That Glitters--onto some Cosmo Cricket Christmas paper with Versamark and heat embossed with fine detail gold embossing powder. The sentiment was done the same way. Then I added some gold flat-backed pearls and "hung" the ornaments with tiny gold cording. Everything else is square and should be easy to figure out.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime110 if you upload to a public forum.
