Hello there, I've been busy today preparing my inchie for the fantastic challenge over at the Every Inchie Monday challenge blog. If you'd like to join in you can find a list of inspiration words to the left of their home page.
This is great fun, and really is a challenge, as you have only one inch in which to create your work of art. That really gets the furry cogs whirring.
For this weeks word - hut, I was going to create the symbol for a well known pizza chain, but remembered that the bears had a veritable stash of corrugated card, and changed my mind to a beach hut theme instead.
I used Salty Ocean Distress stain to colour my inchie background.
I then cut a hut shape and a triangular roof from the corrugated card. I cut a little door into the hut, and added some pink card underneath the open door to suggest a bright interior to the beach hut.
For the inchie background I used a miniature stamp we have of a flock of birds to add to the seaside theme. I then tore a little sandpaper, and adhered this to the bottom of the inchie, to represent a sandy beach.
I really enjoyed this week's inchie making, so much so that I then had an inchie frenzy, and made the next 7 week's worth! You'll have to wait to see those though, oh the anticipation!!!!!
With love from the bears.
