So without further ado....
Challenge #1....INCHIES!!!These 1"x1" squares are all the rage right now and a lot of fun (in some peoples opinions-LOL)!! You can use an image that fits within your square OR use a 1" portion of a larger image! Those of you who are followers of my blog know that I recently made my first inchie a few weeks ago. You also know that I'm not exactly a huge inchie fan. I find it hard, actually next to impossible, to work with (and cut) such a small piece of paper. For my challenge card I chose to go with the "several inches for one large image" option. It is hard to tell by the picture, but for my main image I stamped it on white cardstock and colored it, then I stamped it a second time on a piece of scrap white cardstock and colored it again. I layered it over the first image with non-permanent adhesive, cut it into 1"x1" squares, removed the top layer pieces and popped each little piece up with a dimensional. Considering my lack of love for inchies, I thought this card turned out pretty ok.
Here is a close-up of the image. You can see how I popped up the image better in this photo.Supplies used: All stamps are DRS Designs, Basic Black and Summer Sun cardstock from SU, Georgia Pacific white cardstock, Bazzil Bling orange cardstock, self adhesive gems from K&Co., Amuse ribbon, May Arts Ribbon, Prismacolor markers, Koh-i-noor colored pencils w/OMS, Art Institute glitter (Lion's Mane and Black), Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder, Nestibilities ribbon slide die.
