I wanted to do something with the flowers I made a couple of days ago, and this is what I came up with, a card for a friend -
I stuck a few black and white bird illustrations to the card and lightly brushed gesso over the whole lot, added some gilding flakes randomly, edged the card with a gold marker and of course glued on the flowers and some leaves.
And then I tackled the task of catching up with all the inchies I had missed over the last couple of months. Yikes. NINE of them! I think I got them in the right order.
Red background, gold heart pierced by an arrow made from half a toothpick
background coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens, cut out image
I chose a hair accessory for this challenge. Hand coloured an image of a young lady and used a scrap of lace, a little bit of bling and tiny bits of ribbon to create a floral hair band for her
I punched little 'AIR bubbles' out of shiny plastic
Had to be a pink rabbit jumping out of a top hat for me. Magic wand is made from a toothpick.
Covered the inchie in a tiny bit of brocade fabric, cut wings from a scrap of gold paper doily and attached them to the tiniest little frozen charlotte. She is wearing a dress made from a teeny piece of lace.
For the last tag of the year I used a photograph which I had taken years ago at our cottage in France, of an almost red moon over the hills across from our valley.
I am so glad that I made the effort to catch up, it feels really good to have a complete set of inchies for 2012 as well as for 2011.
