Every Inchie Monday Challenge - COSMIC

It is Tuesday, but only early afternoon, so it is almost still Monday, right? So, I am not very late really. The theme for this week is COSMIC, and my first thought took my straight back to my Hippie Days and friends in long flowing robes, long hair and flowers painted on their faces saying " Hey man, thats cosmic. Yeah ". Hmmm. I put that out of my mind very quickly, lol. And then of course, being a Sci Fi nut, my thoughts turned to spaceships and galaxies and alien life out there in the great Cosmos. And thats what I went with -


A couple of weeks ago, I saved a picture of a galaxy for a Tag Tuesday challenge project, and I used a tiny part of it as the background for my COSMIC inchie. I inked it slightly with an Opalite Glacier Blue, which added fabulous little sparkly planets throughout the universe. A few larger ones were added with a silver Gelly Roll pen -



And then I had oodles of fun finding images of spaceships and aliens. Geez, cutting out these tiny little bits really does require a very steady hand!

And now I want to go space travelling myself. The wonderful, amazing, fabulously strange worlds which just have to be out there somewhere..........


I am really pleased with my growing Inchie collection. I have to start thinking about putting them somehwere more permanently, but for now they are snuggled up in this little heart box -


Tomorrow and the day after, I'll have some gorgeous things for you to look at, one is another OWOH win, the other a fabulous giveaway win. You are so going to drool over them!
