Ways to use INCHIES!!

ETA: I was out on the golf course today and suddenly I had a thought - "I didn't colour those inchies with copics - I watercoloured them!" I had a good game too, by the way - even with all that thinking!!

I bought a box of inchies from Ellen Hutson's store a while back and have been wanting to use them.

Ellen has a challenge on the Inchie INKling blog to create a food themed inchie and as luck would have it Splitcoast Stampers challenge yesterday was to use inchies!!

I have a few of the itty bitty Lockhart stamps so I decided on the itty bitty teapot and the itty bitty cupcake (herein refered to as IB).

I stamped my IB on the inchie square and coloured each one with copics.

Then I stamped the teapot on a post-it note making sure that I stamped it at the top of the note so that the sticky part would be on the back of the image when I cut it out.

After I cut the teapot out, I stuck it on top of the inchie and inked up my Pretty Patterned backgrounder with Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush Ink. I pressed the inchie on top of the backgrounder, carefully lifted it off and peeled off the mask.

I did that with Aquamist, Lemon Tart and Spring Moss ink also.

When I did the cupcake - and for some un-godly reason- I did not make a mask and just stamped the Lemon Tart ink on the inchie without the mask. While I was doing this I suddenly thought - CRAP!! I didn't make a mask for this!!! Anyway, it turned out okay, so I was saved!!

I covered the teapot and cupcake with glaze and glued the inchies on my card base of a piece of designer paper from Memory Box.

The sentiment is from Kim Hughes stamp set Silhouette Blooms II from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Off to golf again today!! YAY!!
