'Let's Celebrate' Inchies

Here are my latest set of 9 Inchies for the January monthly challenge over on UK Stampers Forum whose theme was 'Let's Celebrate' . The theme for March is 'Oriental'.

For these inchies I used:

  • Cardstock (Dark Blue & speckled Grey)
  • Primary Elements (Rich Cobalt)
  • Simple Solution No 2
  • Rubber Stamp (PaperArtsy Text Mini MN 11)
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Detail Embossing Powder (Silver)
  • Inkjet printed words
  • Small White Flower Brads
  • Colorbox Chalk Inkpad (Pale Blue)

A piece of dark blue cardstock was brush coated with a wash of the Rich Cobalt primary elements mixed 1 part to 2 with the simple solution No 2. This was allowed to dry thoroughly.

The stamp was then inked with Versamark and stamped onto the painted card which was then heat embossed with the detail silver embossing powder using a heat gun. The embossed card was cut into slightly less than 1 inch squares. The white flower brads were added, one per square and these squares mounted onto the speckled grey card with glue stick and trimmed to leave a very small 1mm border of the grey card as a contrast.

Finally the words were printed onto copy paper with an inkjet printer, swiped over with the chalk inkpad and trimmed with scissors. The words were stuck onto the Inchies with glue stick to finish.

Hope you like them :-)
