Today I had planned to get a lot of work done. We all know what comes of "the best laid plans of mice and men," don't we? I still have a couple of 3" x 3" cards to share with you tonight, both with "inchie" focal points.
First I have a bird card using scalloped squares, Memory Box Aerial paper, and a bit of bling. I colored the birds in with the Copic markers pictured below. The deep yellow grosgrain ribbon and cardstock are PaperTrey Ink's Summer Sunshine. I used a Crafty Secrets sentiment inside, "Love warms every nest." (Is it just me, or does anyone else think that this looks like a mother bird lecturing a baby bird? I think my perception has been colored by my day!)
My second inchie card has a soldered centerpiece that is attached by a glue dot; it could be removed to be used as a magnet. I chose a larger image, basket of peaches, and selected my favorite square inch of it to color and frame. Most of the markers were the same as the ones above, with the addition of a deeper green (G99) and some peach/pink tones (YR21, R02, R83). The rhinestones are teal, citron, and clear. I used a stamped background on this one, CHF's Scratched Grid backgrounder. The ribbon is some SU white taffeta.
If you have been playing with inchies, don't forget to check out the Inchie Inklings blog for challenges and tips. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
