A New Challenge - for Inchies!


The first theme for this new Inchie challenge is "Swirl" and for anyone that doesn't know, an inchie is miniature art - in a one inch by one inch format. Up until now I have only made fabric inchies and I found those very addictive and a lot of fun so I thought I would try my hand at a paper based one this time. I made eight as they are easy to make as a group and as I think they will make good little trades or alternatively will look great mounted together on a card etc.

These inchies are based on a piece of Basic Grey paper which I have stamped repeatedly with a swirl stamp in black ink. I have stamped miniature text in red as well but the red ink is not distinct in the final piece. The edges are inked black and the swirl shaped paperclips are glued on. The inchies are finished with a spray of Moon Shadow Mist in Medieval Gold which gives them a beautiful golden glimmer but of course it doesn't show up at all in the scan!

Wow! I'm not into stamping, but those are really cool and you're right they'd look great on a card.

These are beautiful! They do look like they'd work really grouped like that on a card or a canvas.

They're kind of addictive, these inchies. (I just made my first one.)
