This started life as a ' Post-It ' pad.  Its a good job  you cannot see inside as it is the most hideous shade of Green and hard to get a photo.
 Challenge 12 at Artful times this week is Inchies.
I've not made any of these for ages.
So I first of all made the tile, using Dylusions sprays for colouring then  when dry stamped on an Indigo Blue stamp of a bird.  I then  glazed it over with a few layers of clear embossing powder.
After looking at the inch square and wondering what to do with it, I decided to use it on this cover.
Which is a piece of pretty paper with  a couple of die cut flowers as layers, together with a few additions  that I had lying in my bits and pieces box.
Other shading is Tea Dye distress ink.
It is now beside the phone, for the time I may need to write a message.
Now I'd better find a pen to put beside it.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.

  6. Yvonne, have you got any spare time? You seem to get so much done & I feel like a duck or swan, gliding along but having a furious paddle under the surface! PS thanks for the tip-off about the blinkie all i need to do now is try to work out what to do to get it there as I am sure that it will not be as simple as "cut & paste"

    Love it when you decorate an inchie and then put several layers of utee over - gives it that extra touch.
