Inchie Art.

Grungy Monday- week6 over at Linda's Studio L3 super examples to see over there to tempt you into trying this weeks challenge.
First of all a visit to Tim Holtz here to revisit the techniques from holidays past, which is an amazing tag , showing how to do dauber resist.
I used Butterscotch and Pool coloured daubers. Stampinton and Stampers anonymous stamps.  The distress inks were weathered wood and wild honey.  The butterfly is a die cut, I have used an old nib, I apologise but I cannot remember where I saw  it used this way out there in blogland, but I use it in good faith as you gave me the inspiration.
The image I  have cut into inchies and remounted to use on a hanging on the main piece.
I loved the words, "Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible th others." The words were hard to get into focus.

This hanging will also fit the theme  for the current challenge over at the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight blog.
[Caz you have me hooked on inchies again.] You must include at least 3 inchies in the piece you make.

Thankyou for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
