Pink Ninjas Kawaii Challenge!!!

It's the clash of two DTs again!!! 

This week the prompt on The Pink Ninjas is "Kawaii" ("cute" in Japanese). 

Can't get much cuter than a Care Bear, eh?  How about the CUTE cloud, sun, and "kawaii"?  Those are all from the new Torendi Rub Ons set "A Kawaii Day". 

These rub ons are **AMAZING**!!!  They're shiney black vinyl so they're really sturdy, easy to apply, and they have a teeny bit of dimension so they work well as an outline for glue in case you're a glitter freak like me. 

Here I filled each letter and the sun in with Art Glitter glue and then covered with fine glitter.  You can see, especially with the sun, how the glue stayed within the outline and didn't flood into the facial features because the rub ons have a little height to them. 

Here I use my Art Glitter glue again to outline against the rub on and apply glitter.  

Also, notice that I applied the two heart rub ons directly on top of glitter and they adhered beautifully.

Plus, it may be difficult to discern from my layout the size of these rub ons...they're HUGE!!

The rainbow is just a series of strips of paper I sprayed with glue and applied glitter.  (A la my hot air baloon card for Torendi.)

Bop on over to the Pink Ninja's site HERE to check out what Kawaii creations the rest of the Design Team made. 

And then we'd love to see what Kawaii projects you make!!  This week The Pink Ninjas is hosting an actual challenge WITH A PRIZE!!!  This week's challenge is being sponsored by Torendi and they're going to send one lucky winner a set of the amazing "I ~heart~ Kawaii" rub ons! 

So link up your project by December 8 HERE for your chance to win!!!!!

AND, check out the Pink Ninjas site for an awesome Torendi store coupon code, too!!!

Have a great Wednesday!
