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...

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
