Are you familiar with Torendi

Torendi is a super cool website dedicated to the new, fun, fresh and exciting side of paper crafting.  Torendi means "trendy" in Japanese. 

Check out the Torendi site!  They have some of the most ADORABLE and fun products in their store.  (Look at THIS cupcake stamp!  And I want some of THESE tapes.  And who doesn't love Cosmo Cricket and Bam Pop!?)  Their gallery and blog are just teeming with amazing and trend forward ideas.  And they offer SCRUMPTIOUS monthly kits

Beginning Wednesday, October 14, Torendi is conducting a Survivor-type competition for spots on their Design Team.  And guess who is playing along??  Yours truly!

Like my little Domo rendition?  He's a Japanese pop culture icon.  I'm obsessed with Domo and have lots of little Domo toys.  But, I don't have any two-dimensional representations of him so I figured I'd just go ahead and freehand him.  Whadayathink?

I made him Samurai Domo and since he's sending out a hello card I figured in his case a pen was mightier than a sword (or, that is, a Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend pencil).  Get it?  Samurai?  Karate?  Hi Ya!  Or Hiya, as in how YOU doin'?  (OK, did your mind just say that like Joey from Friends or is that just my own private little pop culture hell?)

So, if you like my card, PLEASE head on over to the Torendi blog and VOTE FOR ME!!

The two designers with the least amount of votes at the end of the week (Tuesday, October 20) will be eliminated from the competition.   :o( 

I'd really love to continue on and show you my next "torendi" creation next Wednesday! 

Thank you for your support!!!


Details:  Paper - Cosmo Cricket, The Paper Company; Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas; Stampendous embossing powder; VersaMark ink; Stampin' Up! marker & brads; Zig Millennium pen; Michaels ribbon.
