Try it on Tuesday - Inchies


Try it on Tuesday has an inchies theme this week. What is an inchie ? Just an image that is only 1" x 1". Three is the requirement !

Now I do love inchies - I think they are so fun, and you can always sneak one in your card somewhere. These particular ones come from The House Across the Bay Etsy shop, and I believe they are entitled "steampunk" - the rest of the inchies on this sheet are in keeping with the fun of these four.

A couple of these papers I am afraid, are scraps, and I don't know where they came from - well one came from my lss and one from Joann's, but the manufacturer ? not a clue.

One thing I did on this card I haven't done before, and I don't know why not, is some macrame. I thought knots would be in keeping with the ship the pilot is sailing, but when I finished the card and looked at that photo closer I realized he is actually piloting something airborne ! Even dumber, and betraying my old age - I tried to look at that photo by clicking on this image instead of looking at the card right next to me. Whoa - glad the weekend is approaching and my weary brain won't have to make those sorts of distinctions.

Have a wonderful weekend !

  1. WOW those HATB papers are really cool. I took a peek at their etsy store and they have some great stuff. No wonder you're spending $$$$ there. Great card Jan! Makes me think of Wendy Vecchi's style. Very steampunk. Ship or plane the macrame knot looks fantastic. I've never learned how to do that. Hugs!
