Every Inchie Monday - SISTERS

I hope you are all suitably impressed that I have my Every Inchie Monday inchie ready on a Monday!

I scanned in a small photograph I had in my collection, and cut out the rather serious looking sisters. I glued a little snippet of lace to the inchie for the background, and cut out a tiny flower from another piece of very fine lace for the top corner. Little bit of defining the edges with chalk ink and that was it really, nothing too complicated.



I thought you might like to see the original little photograph which I had scanned in. I put my inchie at the top -

I love your new creations! Really wonderful things

Dolores said...

Great inchie. I do wonder why it is that years ago people always looked so serious when they got their photo taken.

Dorthe said...

Maybe simple, dearest, but so beautiful, and so lovely made- and you are truly amazing Liz, that you have (I guess) made every inchie from day one,-till now...fantastic.
smiles and hugs-

Great inchie, just reminds me of my sister and I when we were younger - in other words where I went she had to follow! Love the lace you've used and the scanned photo with your inchie inset x

You creations are always beautiful! I love the comment about challenges every day of the week to avoid housework. Too funny. Of course, I have a blog and Youtube videos and I'm not able to do a thing in the house (wink). Your inchies and tags are lovely. Thanks for sharing them............Angie
