Hello my friends.
In recent posts I have shared with you some ATC's and flowers that I am going to SWAP. Now I made some inchies too!
I love inchies... a tiny 1" square piece of art, message, sentiment, image or made-by-you embellishment to trade with others. I think is cool. You can use them in your projects by themselves, combined or simply collect them all.
I decided to make two different designs.
One is a stamped image painted with watercolor pencils. I also painted the base surrounding the image in blue with distressing ink. I wanted to give the impression of sea and/or sky, because the image is a seagull. Each one of these inchies is unique since they are stamped and painted one by one.
Then I made another one with a cupcake image. I painted it with watercolor pencils too. For the frosting I painted with different colors for different flavors, topped with glossy accents and some glitter. It's so cool when you take a closer look. The "frosting" has great dimension.
Inchies can be used for embellishment as I mentioned, so I made this quick clean and simple card. Why is it so specially quick and simple? I did not cut anything thinking of the card. I strictly used scrap paper I had in my table from previous projects. It was so quick! I can't even believe myself.
And if you are thinking the inchie complicates the card, just use a button, or a flower, or a stamp sentiment... but see what you can do with scrap paper you thought it was trash. Try it.
I hope you liked my inchies, my card, and that you have a great day!!!!
