So finally I have reached the last day of my wonderful and very long Christmas break. I intend to spend today being very self-indulgent before the return to the old routine tomorrow.
Today I am sharing my first project of the year for Every Inchie Monday. There are 52 new words for all the players to get their teeth into and I hope I can join in every week in 2014. There are two words to kick off the first week – Alice blue. For my inchies I first coloured white card with Broken China distress stain which is a lovely “Alice blue.”
Next I used a script stamp and Salty Ocean distress ink. The butterfly stamps are from a fabulous new set by Darkroom Door called “String Inspiration.” I stamped the butterflies in black Memento ink and then punched out the inchie squares.
I stamped each butterfly again, coloured them with distress ink, cut them out and then applied them over the top of the original stamped image.
To finish them off, I inked round the edges, to give a little more definition to the square and then added a tiny pearl.
The eagle eyed among you may have noticed that I am no longer keeping tally of my craft packages ordered/received. I decided that as one of my resolutions was to not buy any new crafting stash, except essentials, it was probably a little superfluous. However, if I break my resolution I will of course ‘fess up to you all!!
Thanks for buzzing by.
