Inchie and Cards

Hello to everyone who drops by Jumbled Crafts. A bit dull here at the moment but supposed to be sunshine later so fingers crossed

At Every Inchie Monday this week the theme is dark


I immediately thought of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the moon and used their album cover as my inchie for this week.

I made some birthday cards yesterday for friends and neighbours whose birthdays are very soon.


The backing for this is cream card and I distressed the edges then I added a piece from an old canvas map for the next layer. The animal print card was from Valerie :) and the image GeckoGalz.

This one is for a friend who loves going on cruises so she can get dressed up--my worst nightmare I'm afraid.
I made the peacock feather background then added the black silhouette die cut with a bit of glitter. On top of that I added the white die cut and some black jewel stones. The other bits are peel-offs.

This card fulfils a challenge set for me by Max when she sent me these die cuts and some others and even the card they had been cut from so I could use those as stencils. Thank you Max :)

Thank you for calling in and have a great day everyone

Love Chrissie x

Your inchie is perfection - how did you get the lettering so neat. I've just come across my very old copy of the album during my decluttering - happy days :)

Dark side of the moon came to mind but I was not sure I could do it justice with my limited supplies....the cards you've made are also lovely, I'm not one for cruises either as I am not one for glamming up any more but some of my friends just love the idea of dressing for dinner etc.

I think I'm a bit like my stepdaughter - dressing for dinner means putting on a clean top :-)

Your Inchie is great. I LOVE the card and what you said. I couldn't wait to retire so I could toss out everything that wasn't blue jeans and t-shirts :)

Dark side of the moon - so iconic and such a great inchie. Fab bday cards too - I particularly love the man in the wind - perfect match of sentiment and image. Marina
