They asked for an inch- Week 9 (ABAA)




What a great challenge set by Rosie and Linda this week on the Awfully Big Art Adventure.

This weeks challenge was to make a set of inchies. Never having done them before I was worried as to how I was going to work with these minatures.
However its taken me less than 50 mins to complete.

I decided to do a set of 16, I used the letters from my name, my favourite number 16, a heart, a key, a photo of me when i was a baby, an image of a woman, some quotes , some stars to wish on, and a pair of legs.

All the card was black and cream, and I used cerise ink to colour the grungeboard letters, numbers, shapes and stamping.

I intend to maybe put them in a frame and make a picture for my bedroom wall, the colours are perfect and Im pleased with my end result.

Thank you again Ladies, another excellent challenge.
