Created byhand Tuesday Inchie Challenge

I did a double-sided inchie for this challenge.

And the other side?
These were stamped with VersaFine Black and VersaMagic Dew Drops Pixie Dust using one of the the Quietfire Design Tiles onto K&Company La Boutique Designer Paper. Waxed linen thread was used to secure the Yes and No charms.

Created byhand Tuesday Distress Inks Challenge - Balancing Act

As usual, this wasn't what I expected to do! I used Aged Mahogany (fabulous colour!) Distress Ink for the Flourish and to colour the paper the Inchie is mounted on.

My Very First.... Inchie

It's always nice to find that you have a 1" square stamp! I felt the need to resurrect an idea I had a few years ago for a flying heart! I used little loops of ribbon for the wings. Give it a wee kiss and let it fly!

For this Inchie I used:
Bazzill Card Stock
Tile Rubber Stamp
Puffy heart
thin green satin ribbon
Mini Glue Dots
Distress Frayed Burlap

And what happens to Inchies after they're finished?

Here's one use!

Sweet Cheeks

Oh my, it depends on your computer monitor if this looks like a black background! It's really dark blue. The big disappointment is the large Flourish. It is stamped with The Essential Glue Pad and then Silver Composition Leaf was adhered to it. The scan just doesn't do it justice.
The Glue Pad and the Composition Leaf certainly worked well together - take my word for it - it looks great!

For this Friday amusment I used: (click on each link to see the product)
Bazzill Blue Monochrom
Dotted Harlequin Border (large diamonds) for the hanging tapestry
Vintage Bare Bottoms Collage image
Brilliance Platinum Planet Stamp Pad
Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue Dew Drop
The Essential Glue Pad
Puffy Burgundy Heart
Silver Composition Leaf

Happy weekend creating!

Tuesday Created byhand Frames Challenge

This was not what I expected to do at all, but there was that stamp of the girl with the hat (Stampinton) staring across the room at me. She need a heart and I needed a frame! The background doesn't show up at all, I'm afraid. The background was stamped with Flourishes using Resist ink then spritzed with Color Wash. Not the usual effect and totally lost in the scan... so sad....
