Inchy by Inch Challenges

These inchies are for the inchie challenge blog Inchy by Inch. Fiona has given us single word prompts to inspire us.

Week One - Touch

Week Two - Dainty

Week Three - Wave

Week Four - Separation

My inchie bases are mountboard, cut into 1 inch squares. These were covered in the relevant definitions taken from an old dictionary.

The images were stamped on white tissue paper, using Archival Ink (Jet Black). The tissue paper images were then adhered over the dictionary paper, using matte Studio multi-medium.

I added paper flowers, brads, fibre & Glossy Accents as embellishments.

I like creating sets of inchies, so to tie them together, I mounted each inchie, using 3d foam, on to a square of Papermania backing paper & added additional wording to illustrate the thinking behind each inchie.

The images used were mini rubber stamps designed by Tim Holtz.
