I struggled for a long time to think of what take I could do for this week’s Every Inchie Monday theme of “old.” I thought of doing distressed backgrounds or wrinkled fabric and papers. However, in the end I decided to go with using up old supplies and utilised last year’s “old” Christmas cards to make these:
I have a feeling that making something along these lines may become addictive! I punched out the one inch squares from different Christmas cards.
I drew the trees, by hand, onto more bits of old Christmas card, using a scribbly style that I hope looks a bit like stitching. Then it was just a case of cutting them out and sticking them onto the inchie background. To finish them off I’ve added some hand drawn stitching around the edges.
For this inchie I made the background and used some Vintage Photo distresss ink to colour the card. I spritzed the ink with water to give it an even more distressed look. The tree is made from an old book page.
There are, as always, some great takes on the them challenge so be sure to buzz over to Every Inchie Monday and check them out.
Thanks for buzzing by.
