Hi, I am one of the newer members of the D.T.at Crafty Cardmaker's. This week on the Spotlight blog is my first challenge choice, I have chosen Inchies - your project MUST HAVE AT LEAST 3 X INCHIES. Your first question may be, "What are inchies?" An inchie is either a piece of paper or card, you can use other materials but for beginner's I would advice the paper or card, which is cut or punched to measure 1" square. There are so many ways, techniques and designs which can be used. They can be a good area to start practicing some of the more advanced techniques. You can buy Inchie stamps, or use part of a larger stamp or even a large stamp to cover a number of inchies. Hero Arts have a good video to watch a project on You Tube, plus if you want to see more there are a number to watch on the same page here or Google Inchies. I have on my blog
3 cards with various numbers of inchies being used, check the labels below on the right side bar. The card above has been coloured with Distress inks, Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint. I sprayed the background card with water to achieve the effect. The inchies I cut from a previously prepared masterboard, which if you want more info go to here, then matted onto 3cm squares. The bookmark below shows you can make more than cards, this is for one of my grandsons. I stamped and embossed with silver E.P. onto a grey card, matt and layered onto silver and black. The stamp is from Elusive Images.
