These first ones are for the Inchies Exchange swap I'm in. I had to create 50 and it took me a few days to get them done, though I worked on them obsessively Roll Eyes Take a look at the in progress pics. These little guys are so much fun to make!

There are more finished inchies throughout these pages as I'm updating this thread when I create more.

My first set...


Progress shots:

Preparing the backgrounds using watercolours


Adding more watercolour details


Some ink work and stamps added


Collaged


And then the final pencil crayon and ink details added


I was going to use wax crayons also as I like to use them a lot, but they were just too clumsy for the diddy squares.

I hope my swap partners will like these!

Thanks! Grin

I retook the picture with natural light so I've updated the first post. The flash kinda bleached out the other picture.
