My First Inchie

OMG, you would not believe how many times I took this photo without it blurring ! I even scanned it in but as there is a lot of gold it just din't look right at all.

Thanks to my very good friend Sarn I have made my tiniest work of art to day, and inchie (hence the ruler in the photo to prove how tiny it is!!) I thought a 3" x 3" card for a 365 Cards challenge was small, well this was titchy !

I've been able to fit 3 challenges into this little beauty and if I can find one from last week I can make that 4, they are.....
So, lets start with the deets. The base of the inchie is a piece of brown cardstock. The next layer is white cardstock, the next layer a piece of Craftwork Cards paper which I trimmed with zig zag scissors, the red spotty paper is HOTP. The butterfly is a metallic holographic sticker from a big sheet of assorted sizes, fortunately some were tiny :) Last but not least I wrote a B in the corner for butterfly. This could signify I may make an alphabet version and do one for each letter..... or it could be that I was trying to be a bit arty LOL

All the little scraps were on my desk so now I'm going to be looking at EVERY scrap and thinking I can make something with it now. I want to have a go at a Twinchie next as I think it will be a lot easier to work on the bigger size.

Watch this space...
