Hero Arts Blog Challenge “Inchies”

The challenge on Hero Arts Blog this week is to make “inches” – a 1″x1″ stamped square.

So here goes! My first inchies!

The recipe:
  • I started with 2 new Hero Arts stamps (new to me anyway) – the long branch and the bird in a cage. The second little bird on the branch I drew by hand.
  • I stamped those with Brillance Graphite Black on SU Whisper White CS.
  • The yellow background is Lasting Impressions CS (very old – from my stash).
  • The greeting “you’re the best” is SU from “A little birdie told me” set.
  • The blue CS is SU Blue Bayou – can’t believe that my favorite colour will be retired!!!
  • The pale blue (behind the bird cage and greeting) is Stampin’Up! Bashful blue.
  • I drew the bird and the wire for the cage with a Copic Multi liner pen.
  • The ribbon is Stampin’Up! Blue Bayou.
  • Oh yes, the image was colored with SU Blue Bayou and Marigold Morning Inks and a waterbrush.
  • I added a touch of iridiscent ink on the birds and on the sun (a product called Silk by Stampa Rosa which is long gone (out of business)).
  • The leaves and branch were colored with SU markers (Choco chip and old olive).
  • I also used SU pop dots to raise the greeting and the inchies.
Thanks for looking! Merci de visiter mon blog!
