Inchie and ATC

Here we are again at the beginning of a new week. It has started off here very cold with a heavy frost covering everything. Always makes me think of the Doctor Zhivago film when I see this sort of white world. Fortunately ours will clear quite quickly I'm sure.

At Every Inchie Monday this week we have Brown as the theme

I had a bit of a panic when I tried to add the picture of my inchie cause the original one had disappeared and the brown inchie was stuck on my year sheet very firmly. I took a picture of it on the page then had to 'rescue' it from the others so the picture looks a bit square. All I did for this inchie was ink an inchie shape with brown them use a die cut flower shape and ink that brown as well. Then I added it to the backing with a brown brad. You can't get browner than that :)

At Wicked Wednesday this week the theme is Hearts and Love. It is always an ATC you have to make for the WW challenges

I won this cute stamp in a Wicked Wednesday challenge. It is from  Creepy Cute Stamps and I love it. You could have two of your choice when I won.

The background is just Distressed Stain and a piece of hearts paper. The image I coloured with Promarkers but the colouring isn't very good as I have just got varifocals which I have never had before and I am finding them difficult at the moment. I still have all my other pairs of glasses but feel I should persevere with the new ones.

Have a wonderful day all and thank you for dropping by Jumbled Crafts.

Love Chrissie x


  1. A brilliant inchie - utterly brown, but full of subtle distressed texture which captures the light in different ways - it has a wonderful rusty leathery look to it! The little Creepy Cute chap reminds me of all those lost and abandoned toys in Toy Story 3 - he needs a good hug!

    Hope you settle in to the varifocals...

  8. Love your inchie Chrissie and yes I'd say it's sufficiently brown lol. Your creepy guy is very cute. Good luck with the glasses, I know I need some new ones but I've been putting it off - it's the Northern meanness :-) x

  11. Great texture on your all brown inchie. Very well done!

  12. That's a lovely inchie. You probably realised I've opted out this year, but I've been doing it for more than two years and I felt it was time to move on. But I love your brown flower.

  13. I love your brown inchie and your ATC is fab.

  14. Gorgeous inchie, and a great ATC.

  15. Oh my gosh, your flower is so much classier than my rustic brown daisy! REALLY PRETTY! I'm glad I never look at the others until I've got mine done and posted or I might not have posted mine!
