I’ve actually made two cards today . . .  WOO HOO!  I so wanted to do the SCS Sketch Challenge today, so after my nap I jumped on it.  Hehe – yep got that afternoon nap in.  But sssshhhh, don’t tell anyone!  Since I’m watching American Idol while I’m writing this post, I gonna get right to it.

I loved the sketch today because it is perfect to incorporate inchies with.  You know I do love to make inchies.   When I saw the Home Tweet Home set from Flourishes, the first thing that went through my mind was what I could make inchies with from the set.  I’ve been wanting to work with the birdhouses in this set and today I got to do it.


The inchies were colored with Copic Markers, punched out using a 1″ square punch and then mounted on 1″ illustration board.  While I was at Hobby Lobby one day, I found in the artists section a package of ATC cards made from illustration board.  Today I cut one of the ATCs up into 1″ squares so that I could glue the paper inchies on them for more stability.  The background paper is made with that “inky thing I do” by swiping distress pads on a craft sheet and misting with water.   Even though it is hard to see in the photo, I misted the paper with Broken China/Gold Distressed Pearlized Mist and then stamped the branch from the stamp set in Antique Linen.
