A is for Alter

Fiona at Inchy by Inch has changed the format over on her challenge blog for the next few weeks so that we can make an inchie alphabet.

This will be my third inchie alphabet & I usually make them so that they all
co-ordinate. My second set can be seen here.

So here goes, this is A ... for Alter.

The image of the boy is taken from an old photograph from Craft Stamper & the words are torn from an old English Dictionary acquired from a charity shop just for such a purpose.

After the image was digitally altered, it was printed on white card & adhered to mountboard, with the edges sanded. The dictionary words were inked with Distress Ink (antique linen) & then added to the inchie.

Quite a simple inchie, but the challenge will be whether I can come up with 25 more to match!
