Here’s a little bit of fun for Halloween. This is an inchie I just made that fits the theme of “funny Halloween” over at Small World of Inchies and Twinchies. I found the image on the web and shrunk it down to be one inch wide. I used some scallop scissors to cut the gingham border, which is from a collage sheet. No way was I going to hand trim that small scallop! These scissors are perfect for inchies! The eyeballs are epoxy stickers from Heidi Grace that were in my stash.
The title of this post is also the name of an O.P.I. nail polish. I’m signed up for a twinchie and ATC swap on Splitcoaststampers, where we were to pick names of nail polishes as themes for the cards. There are so many colors and funny names from which to choose; it was really hard to narrow down my selections. Coney Island Cotton Candy is a light pink, so I made sure to include a little bit of pink on my twinchie.
The current challenge theme at Small World of Inchies and Twinchies is “ladies”, so I’m linking “Candy” up to that post.
I had hoped to use this stamp to make an inchie, but the fish was too big for my liking so I made a twinchie instead. The theme at Small World of Inchies and Twinchies is “fishy”, so I pulled out my alcohol inks and got busy. I used black StazOn for stamping and a gold calligraphy pen for edging. The fish is by Inka, and the words are by Club Scrap. Paper is white glossy for the main image and K&Company for the small border. The fish’s bubbles are raindrops by Cloud Nine.
When I think of beautiful and actress together, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn come to mind first. The challenge this week at Small World of Inchies and Twinchies is “royal ladies,” so I thought I would pay homage to Princess Grace with an inchie. (I only need to make about 75 right now to get caught up with my inchie-a-day disaster!)
The word “radiant” was stamped in Stone Gray StazOn. This word is from the Everyday Petites set manufactured by Cornish Heritage Farms. I suspect I will be using these stamps a lot while fulfilling my inchie quota this year!
This twinchie was a work-in-progress for over 2 weeks. There are a hundred other things I should have been working on instead, but I just wanted to get it done. Never mind that I spent over 40 minutes looking for those little pink flowers. I guess that’s what happens when you have too much stuff cluttering up your art space!
Since the theme at
I made a twinchie very similar to this one for a swap at Splitcoaststampers. I used the same image with a different definition from my old dictionary (since we were to use actual pages, not photocopies). The current challenge at Small World of Inchies and Twinchies is “childhood”, so I am linking this twinchie to that site as well.
I’m 5 inches into the new year! Here are two more inchies I made with a “new year’s” theme. The challenge at Small World of Inchies and Twinches is to make something with a New Year’s theme, and these fit the bill. I plan to do each of these challenges this year, since I have 360 inchies left to make!
