Here are a few orange inchies I made for a swap.  I am still just getting started with inchies, but with each new 'batch' I feel like I am improving!

Cute! I love how multi-texture they look, they're really eye-catching! I especially like the big heart and the 'dream' one!

I don't fit in a box, round hole, or any slot that you want to put me in. I am unique, intelligent, funny, passionate, beautiful, spirited and kind. I'm a lover, not a fighter, but will fight when pushed too far. I'm a puzzle it might take you years to figure out, if you can. I am an enigma.

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful comments!  I feel a lot braver about sending them out now.

It isn't paint I used.  I used oil pastels in orange and yellow, along with sharpies and newspaper.

It isn't glitter that you are looking at, but a cool background from some junk mail I received.  It was orange and had like a wet/water looking texture to it.  Also, it was some heavy duty card stock material, so I just got lucky for those backgrounds!

I was nervous about the bold colors at first, too, but then when I started I really liked it!

Well, you can definitely add a few inchies to my Dotee package, when you send, (hint, hint). I'll send some to you as well. They are much more fun to share, ha ha.

Smmarrt-
I am always happy to share and my Dotee will need something to remember me by, so that will help it to adapt to its new home!!!
