May inchie - RED

This is my inchie for a personal trade in the month of May.
I painted a strip of grunge board with Studio red.  I cut this into 1" squares.  I then edged around with a fluid chalk red pigment pad.  I covered each inchie with tulle.   Using a black inkpad, I stamped script over white paper flowers.  I folded the flowers in half and then in thirds and secured each one with a scrap of pink grossgrain ribbon.  I attached the flower to the inchie with glue dots.  I made a tiny tag and used a red inkpen to write "RED" on the tag and used the red pigment pad to edge all around.  I punched a hole in the tag and used red thread to tie onto it.  I tied the other end of the tag to one of Tim Holtz's tiny pins and pinned it through the tulle on the inchie. 

I did spritz red Glimmer Mist on the flower and tag of my own inchie, but not on the others, as I like it best without it.


  1. Very cool inchie Sharon! There were a lot of steps that you did to make this inchie...I appreciate your taking the time to explain it all.

  2. Thank you, Sara. I really tried to do something different from the first 3 swaps we had done. ")
