Feathered Friends

The inchie challenge theme on the Small World of Inchies blog* is Birds of a Feather.

The inch squares were made using background images from The Graphics Fairy & images of the eggs & birds from The Vintage Moth. The images were digitally altered, printed on white card, then adhered to mountboard bases. The edges were then sanded.

The words were torn from an old English dictionary & aged by using Distress Ink (antique linen). A pair of pearls were added as the finishing touch.

  3. great set , do you put filters over the images?

  4. Thank you everyone :o)

    Ellen - I'm not quite sure what you mean, but the first inchie image is made up of four layers, as follows:-

    Floral background from GF
    2nd Layer - eggs from VM
    3rd Layer- clock face from GF
    Top layer - bird from VM

    On the second inchie, the 3rd & top layer are reversed.

    The middle layers are altered in transparency to achieve the final look.

    Each of the original images maybe altered by cropping, changing colour &/or texture.

  5. These are beautiful! Love the soft colors and the pearls!
