Inchie Horror Show!!!
Posted by manicstamper on March 28, 2007
Whoo…everybody is ‘inchie-ing’
Sue at Crafts by Carolyn has the most gorgeous set in the gallery there……I tried to put a link in but it wouldn’t work properly……sorry!!!
These are the ones I entered for the challenge over at UK Stampers and ok so I am an inchie virgin but they are not a patch on others I have seen and nowhere near my finest artistic hour. However……..having said I hated doing them [which I did at the time]I do find them quite intriguing and have decided that I will do some for myself as practice pieces before I even dream of entering another swap.
If I set myself challenges of say 10 at a time maybe they won’t be quite so daunting as having to tackle 26. Doing it that way I will also be able to use up some of the smaller pieces of backgrounds I have already made. Kind people have also given me some fabulous hints and tips on things to use on them and where to buy them.
So this week I shall get some coin collecters pockets and make a start on some small collections of Inchies………..which I may or may not share depending on the mess I make of them.
Well it’s been a lovely day here today…….up until now.
The sun has been shining and I even had washing out on the line…….well one skirt……..lol!!!
Now all hell is let loose as my neighbours son has lit a fire at the rear of their garage/workshop and set fire to our coal bunker. I’ve sent hubby to deal with it because if I go down there I know I will struggle to keep my hands off him. He does stupid things like this on a regular basis and it’s now getting beyond a joke.
There’s a lot more to it but it’s not my place to discuss it on a public Blog.
My digital camera has arrived….oooooh it’s fabby but it’s going to take a bit of practice I think to get some decent shots. I swear the picture I had in the frame this afternoon was of one of my cards but all I got was my foot……….talk about technologically challenged!!!
All hints and tips gratefully received……lol!!!
Hopefully by the time I get around to wanting to photograph 3D projects I’ll be a little better at it.
Just finishing up some cards for the local shop and then I am going to work on some cards for a class tomorrow…….extra samples in different colours as the ladies from the class I did last week said they didn’t like the cards we did as they were dark colours. I thought if I did some in other colours it would show people that you just need to take the technique and apply your own choice of colour to it and experiment a bit with other stamps and different colours of card etc. It’s so difficult trying to please everybody.
Best get on then
Bye for now
