Mixability inchie love.

The mixability challenge this week is to use several inchies or twinchies on a card/project. I choose to go with inchies. I started with the one on the left. I am not a big tape user, but when I saw this sparkly gold tape, I had to get it. I added a piece of paper doily, some pearls and I free hand cut the hearts.


My second inchie was the blue and silver one. I had a scrap of cardstock that I had used markers and an embossing folder to make the blue squares. I added some cheesecloth for texture. I added silver marker around the edges. I added rhinestones and punched out hearts.

The third inchie I made was from a scrap of faux barn board. I punched the barn board so that the brown mat would show through. I added some drywall tape and used Inka gold copper metallic rub over the drywall. It didn't want to stay on the barn board so I added two pewter brads that I added copper marker to the top. I like adding the marker to the brads because it kinda looks antique.

Using a digital image from Diane's Daydream Designs. I used SENDING YOU LOVE OUTLINE SET
I printed it on white cardstock. I added the sentiment "Sending you love."  I also added to the left side and bottom the word love in different languages.
These two photos show the "love" around the edges.

 After I printed the postcard, I took tea bags to age it. I heated the cardstock to make it really dark. Then I sprayed it with gold shimmer ink. The ink kinda puddles and splattered. I made little envelopes to hold my inchies. I added more texture and interest by sewing with gold thread around the edges of the card.
