May inchie - RED
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.
