Every Inchie Monday has the theme of Khaki this week. I must admit to being a bit stuck on this one even though the immediate association was with all things military. I decided to create whilst thinking and see where that took me.
I started by creating the colour khaki by layering up several different Promarkers. Once I’d punched out the squares I added some faux stitching which I thought looked a little bit like the pockets on a military shirt. I was all set to turn one of my squares into just that when I got the idea of the medals. I made these from gold miri card and a scrap of red ribbon.
To the other two inchies I have simply added a poppy and a rose. The words just followed and seemed appropriate this week as we mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
To all those who risked and gave their lives – thank you.
Thanks for buzzing by.
