Inchies too!

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!!!!
