My normal pace is to plod along, in my own time, but today I seemed to whizz by quite quickly. Funny how it goes like that, don't you think...? Well, it is for me, lol.
Anyway, I came across a set of 12 'pink' inchies that I had swapped with some of the members on Bubbly Funk. They were all snuggly tucked away in a little clear plastic bag and I thought this is no good, (even though they'd been in there for 2 years, lol), they need to be made up and popped onto a little frame of some sort, so that's what I did.
I wanted to keep them as a set, even though it didn't look quite as right as it does when they are set as a group of 9, but it's okay, I'm quite happy with it, lol.
I measured and cut some sticky backed mount board, then cut a piece of canvas from a roll, painted this with some Deco Art Wild Rose pink acrylic paint. I used a cotton wool ball to apply the paint and just dabbed it all over the canvas, leaving a few white areas. I then placed it over the mount board and stuck it in place.
I stuck each inchie in place and then decided it needed some kind of frame around it, so (after a thinking for a long while, lol), I remembered a site I clicked on ages ago, (if I remember which one it was, I will put the link up) where a heart shaped punch was used to punch 4 hearts (nooo, never?) to use as a frame. So I used the biggest heart punch I had, about 2" and punched out 4 hearts, then scored each one down the centre and added some DST and folded each one around the 4 corners. These alternative photo corners look pretty when used with a scalloped heart punch too, but I haven't got one of those, LOL.
Here's a list of the bubblies who made the inchies.........from left to right:-
Caroline, Di O, Chris, Lynne Clancy
Karen, Rosie, ME, Di W (Crazy Daisy)
Kathy, Sam, Kaz, Chris A
I made 2 other cards today too, so will upload those tomorrow. (Can't get you all excited and fainting all over the place, can I, LOL LOL)?
Thanks for taking a look. XX
