Inchie and ATC

I can't believe it is Monday again already. Where does the time go?  Lovely to have you call in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for the lovely comments you leave on my posts. I have the best followers and people who pop-in and always appreciate you joining me on this crafty adventure in Blogland.

At Every Inchie Monday this week we have the theme Salmon

Would you believe that I started out to make one using sewing-well I did and it looked so awful I ended up with this. It made me realise that the people who sew their inchies, or do other wonderful techniques, have amazing talent.


I just did a watercolour background and a cut out drawing of a salmon that I coloured in pink and silver.


Now for Wicked Wednesday that has stripes for the theme this week. Still time to enter so hope you will make an ATC with Stripes to join in there.


My background is made with various colours of Promarkers and the image I found on Google How I would love to still be able to wear shoes with heels like that :(

Hope you all have a great day

Love

An ingenious take on the stripes theme. Your atc is really striking, the b&w contrast to the colorful background. I would love to wear heels like that too ! LOL Thanks for joining us at Wicked Wednesday this week x

Your inchie salmon is excellent - very realistic. I didn't know about the ATC challenge, so I'm going to go have a look at it. Your stripes are great - but you wouldn't catch me in shoes like that - too bad for your foot and body health!

Hi Chrissie. Love your signature, what a great way to get some exercise! ;-) Great projects too. The fish jumping for joy and the stripes crazy ATC are both gorgeous! Have a lovely week! Hugs Monika xxx

Maybe we should all try sewing or beading or some of the other techniques that our fellow inchers use so we could appreciate their talent more. Nah:) Yours is very well done and I LOVE your ATC.
