Title: Oh my, 60 Inchies! [Super Duper Image Heavy]
Post by: crazyalien8 on June 13, 2011 08:15:37 PM


Five of my partners have posted their pictures, and I'm pretty sure my sixth partner received her inchies - so! now is the time to share!

These were made for the beginner inchie swap that is just finishing up. All doodles are hand drawn, cut out and glued to 1" punched paper and then hand stamped with wee alphabet letters. They were all so fun to make! My personal favorites are the vitarka, squid, gnome, beer stein, kitty belly and CAAAAAAKE! inchies.  :D


Sweet Tooth



Buddhist



Woodland Critters



Beer!



Underwater Creatures



Cats!




All together now!





Comment/questions/mudslinging, welcome!

Total beginning inchier here, honest!  :D

Just have to say it was really really hard to put them in envelopes and send them all away! I'm just super glad my partners liked them. <3

Eeeeep!! I loves them. Especially the Squid and the Scratch cat one.

These don't look like beginning inchies at all! I'm super scared of inchies...they're soooo small. Super job!

AlmostDawn: If you can get a micron pen 005 - it'll help with drawing on them a lot! The tip is so wee, that you can draw anything in super detail. Didn't use it for these, but I'm planning to work with it on the Scavenger Inchie swap that's going on now. <3

Wow Crazyalien8, I've obviously seen all your sets of inchies seperately in the gallery, but they look even more impressive together. You have officially graduated from beginners inchies!

As the originator and organiser of the beginners inchie swap. I think the idea is simply to give everyone the confidence to try making inchies. But I have been totaly blown away by the amazing quality of the inchies in this round. I'm so happy that after just 2 rounds, so many people are now confident inchie makers and are happy to join in other inchie swaps, that they may have been way too scared to try before. A bit like the newbe swap gives users a taste of swapping without having the worry of other peoples expectations. We also tried our hand at ATC's this time, so hopefully there will be a few extra people participating in the ongoing ATC's swaps in future.  For anyone who is interested, there will probably be several back to back inchie swaps running over the next few months and I intend to launch beginners inchies round 3 in 2-3 months.

Once again Crazyalien8, I love your inchies (wish you had been in my group!)

I love them all! Are the backgrounds scrapbook paper, or did you paint/draw/etc. that part too? Either way, bravo! Great work!

nilmerg: That would be great to have continuous inchie swaps for the collectors out there! I'm definitely going to be joining most of them when the pop up! The beginner inchie swap was a perfect idea, because it does take that fear away about trading something experimental. Great idea, thanks for continuing it!

rackycoo: The backgrounds on all of them are scrap book papers. It's just super quick and easy and awesome. I'm practicing on making my own backgrounds though. They still need some work!  :D

You picked the perfect background for each set!

All gorgeous, but I particularly love the cat ones, and I really want that "scratch" one! :D

Seeing these seriously brightened my day! There's so much excitement in the ones with the sweets, and reading all of them as a series makes me think of a group of people on a sugar-high going bonkers in an ice cream shop.  :D There's no way I could pick a favorite, but the cat belly made me smile even though I haven't felt like smiling today.  :)

kjlutz: I think distressed/vintagey things are my favorite thing to make!

lindyv321: Ohyay! Let's hope in the next inchie swaps we all get shuffled around and eventually get partnered! Lots of different inchies from lots of different people = awesome.

jemimah: Lots of people seem to like that one, which is funny, 'cause I didn't know if I should do a different cat picture to replace it.

calluna: Oh, crazy sugar high, ftw! Just someone bouncing off the walls and gleeing everywhere! The cat belly inchie is my favorite one - because my cats taunt me with belly all the time.

Will probably post another set of 15 this Monday - since they will be in the same style - but this time for a personal swap!


Thanks everyone! And you're so welcome Beautifully Frayed - thanks for inspiring them too! Never would have done them, without the awesome swap.  :D
