So, it's been awhile since I last posted. I have been hecka busy around here. I have been stamping, just not taking the time to post. I think its the picture taking/editing that slows me down the most! Below are pictures of some inchies that I created for the Rustic Inchie challenge/contest over at Inchie Inklings. The basic jist of the challenge was to use a Lockhart image and create something that looked rustic/fallish.....is fallish a word? You can submit up to 3 inchies and you have a chance at winning some great goodies. I ended up submitting two from this grouping. All of the cards are 2 1/2" square and the base cards are Bazzill cardstock. The stamp I used is the Lockhart Wheelbarrow of Pumpkins. I just cropped a bit from the corner. All of the inchies were colored with my Prismacolor pencils and Copic Marker for the light blue background.
For this inchie I punched the corners of a piece of Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock with the Iron Eagle punch. I then layered with a square of SEI striped paper from the Dill Blossom collection. I pierced around the edges of the punched panel for a little more texture. What you can't see in this pic is the little frame that is around the edge of the inchie panel. I took a little strip of paper 1/16" wide and wrapped it around the edges of the inchie to create the frame. This is a little trick I learned from Karen when she wias here last May. Man how time flies!For this little guy I cut a couple of strips of the SEI cardstock and added some brown Dew Drops as embellishments. What you can't see here is that I sprayed Gold Memories Mist over the card/inchie and it is so pretty and shimmery! For this one, I used a bigger square of the striped paper and a smaller square of the Double Dot cardstock. The ribbons are from Amuse. Just for your info...........I love this ribbon! Okay, so I love all ribbon, but that's supposed to be a secret!
Here is the last one. Mr. Pumpkin is layered on a brown panel and then the striped panel. I hand wrote "Happy Fall" in the corner and embellished with a button and some hemp cording. The edges were distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then a little Adirondack Ginger ink was rubbed around the edges.
