Delicately Scented

Linda set two challenges this week on Inching Artists, so of course I did both. The second theme was Vintage Advertisement.

The base was made using Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers (lettuce & sandal) and edged with Distress Ink (dusty concord). A small eyelet with purple cotton thread was the finishing touch.

The vintage soap label image is decoupaged. There is the bottom image and then three layers on top. To give you an idea of the scale, the label is approx 1½ cm in diameter.

So the lesson for today is, decoupage on an inchie is not recommended.

Mad completely mad.
