inchies and blogland inspiration
I cannot believe I haven`t posted anything onto my blog for this long !! Easter and all the bank holidays have got in the way of crafting for me big time. However, the children have now finally gone back to school and so today was the first time in ages I managed to actually sit down and attempt something.
Over at the Just for fun site this week the challenge is inchies. Can you spot mine ? its the tiny bee which I stamped onto a piece of stampboard. I will show you a close up
I used distress inks to colour the piece of stampboard and then stamped the bee in black versafine on top. I added rock candy distress stickles to his wings. I also want to link this post to Judiths blog
. Every week on a Friday she has a forgotten Friday post where the aim is to use stamps and stash you have forgotten about. I`ve had the stampboard inch squares for ages and have not used them till now, the same with the two stamps of the hydgrenga and bee. I`ve copied Judiths idea for the scrabble tiles except mine are paper . I really need to invest in some alphabet stamp sets as I always seem to struggle with finding ways to put on phrases that I want to. If you pop over to Judiths blog you will see where her inspiration came from and then mine in turn. Hope the next post will not take as long next time ! Thanks for visiting x Lavinia
