Inchie and Moos

Nice to have you drop into Jumbled Crafts and I hope your day is going well. A bit dark and damp here so far but I am hopeful. :)

At Every Inchie Monday this week the subject is Rope. It is always amazing to see what people make for the challenges. It certainly stretches the mind to fit it onto just a one inch square.


I did a messy painted background then made a coiled rope from some string.To make it look used I dabbed it with Distressed Ink.

*******************

At Moo Mania the challenge this time is Tools. I thought which tools we use most and they are the ones for the garden.

 The background is a photograph taken in our garden last year and I stapled the tools onto it after adding the apt phrase. I am going to give this to Vic to pin on the back of the shed door as he works so hard in the garden all year round.

Have a lovely day everyone

Love the earthy feel to this post - first the very workmanlike rope (the inking works so well), and then those fabulous tools. Love them both!
