Yeah, my friend showed me these awesome cards she made with inchies on them so I had to try it!

Here's what I came up with.

(my favourites!)


Ingredients:

* sketchbook paper
* Yellow & Fuschia acrylics (and a bit on emulsion for fun!)
* brown paper
* vintage sheet music
* vintage lace
* 20+ year old pressed buttercups
* leaf skeletons
* masses of PVA glue (hence the shine from my camera flash Sad boo)
* rubber stamps
* butterfly hole punch
* pink & orange thread

Thanks Smiley

the colours have come out differently in the pics, because I had to use my ugly flash which makes everything look ugly Tongue but they actually look much nicer in person Smiley

Beautiful inchies!!  I tend to make my inchies one square at a time, but your technique looks like a lot of fun!

Well done you.  I too have been having a go at inchies.  Nothing yet to show for it though.  May well try and do a whole piece and then cut up like yours.  Waned to use for card making, I think they would look very effective.

Loved the colours and textures you used.
