Hey all! thought I would share my latest creation:
About a month ago I went antiquing and this is what happened Smiley I've been working on it for several weeks. It's finally finished minus mounting it in a frame....

Here are some close-ups...hopefully not so blurry:

This is where it all started...I found it at an antique mall. It's an old game from 1930:

I cut up each piece and went to work with my crayola watercolors:

The game came with about 6 game boards...so I get to do this 5 more times! yay....
it also just occurred to me that this post might belong in the "reconstructed/repurposed" board...but- I'm an inchier, so this board is my home front...and they are so close to inchies...

crafting is my release....my creative juices need squeezing once in a while...

These are so awesome! I love that you used Crayola watercolors & the designs came out looking to amazing! Smiley Are the designs on the 7 of clubs & 7 of diamonds stamps or did you draw them?

Thank you for all you sweet posts! to answer Pink Pug INK, The designs are MOST definitely stamps Smiley The whole reason I got into inchie art is because I am no good at free hand drawing at all...the small space hides all mistakes Wink
