Inchie and Card

Hello Everyone. Thank you for calling in today and I hope you like what I have made.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme is Umbra which was another word I didn't know so I am hoping I got the meaning right as I think it means a shadow.


I chose a sundial as my image as without shadow it wouldn't work at all. This image does have the words Umbra Sumus on it so I can't go wrong or can I ?

My next challenge piece is for the Craft Room where we are invited to make our own background 


I am trying to make a Christmas card here and there so am combining making them with challenges if possible. The card base was edged with the red distress ink.


I dabbed the two distressed inks onto a piece of glass then laid the paper on top of them and used the brayer to even the inks out a bit. There was still some ink left on the glass so I laid the rest of the paper on that and brayed again to make a lighter coloured piece of paper. I try to make a few children's cards for the children who live on our little cul-de-sac.


I bought two of these packs of embellishments to add to Christmas Cards.

Adding this to Marina's Christmas Card Challenge as well-I have only 5 so far but I am trying Marina :)

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie x

What a beautiful sundial you've shared! I saw quite a few this summer whilst in France but didn't feel I could interpret them well enough.

Love your sundial, I would think it's appropriate for "umbra". Interesting to see how you made the card's background. Your roller looks like a serious piece of kit from a printers'!

Great makes Chrissie, I am learning lots of new words here on your inchies.

love your sundial Chrissie - a very classic use of the word umbra (I too learn a lot from EIM)

Your Christmas card is adorable - I'm sure the neighbourhood children will love them.
