Welcome to my new and longer established followers (always feel bad calling you old for some reason!) It is half past one and I seem to have done nothing other than blog and complete one of the projects on my desk before time runs out. GOT to get this done and get something or another cleaned before guilt sets in even further! (so that does mean this will be short and sweet - everyone breath a sigh of relief:)
Never made 'Inchies' before but that was a challenge set by Neet at Artful Times, so who am I to refuse? especially when it dovetails nicely with the Fashionable Stamping Challenge which is currently Good Things Come in Small Packages. These used the Indigo Blu 'Take the Time' stamp set.
This took forever because I went to town on each inchie. Who knew something so small could involve so much work? And so for a quick run through of each one...
Top left - pocket watch on shrink plastic on a gold card background with blown alcohol inks.
Top middle - flittered cogs with soft gold pva centres.
Top right -watch centre using the coloured angelina fibres technique from previous posts.
Middle left - 'caught in crystal' embossed and highlighted with archival black ink.
Middle - sentiment on shrink plastic (trimmed carefully!)
Middle right - a random stash bead 'set' with a black Promarker.
Bottom left - die cut cog covered in Morris Dance mega flakes and set on an embossed background.
Bottom middle - cogs set into black UTEE coloured with mica powders (faux cloisonne).
Bottom right - embossed vellum coloured with copper and gold pigment inks.
Time to pull my underwear over my clothing (in a phone box of course!) and give the house a good going over so OH thinks I've been busy!!! Hugs to you all, Buttons x
