Silver Inchies


I've been hosting a series of colour inchies swaps on the ATcards website. The silver inchies are due at the end of this month so it was about time to get on with making my own ones! I had made the background for them quite some time ago but other projects took over and they were lingering in my not yet finished pile.

The background is made from a piece of silver lame which was ironed (use a cover sheet so the lame does not melt!) onto Fast2Fuse. I added the sepia vintage images, which were a gift from one of my inchie swappers, by glueing them on. I let this dry and then added silver acrylic ink on top of the images and also beaded around the edges with size 15 seed beads.

I ironed a silvery fabric onto the other side of the Fast2Fuse to form the backing. I again used silver acrylic ink to brush onto the edges of the Fast2Fuse.

Freida, I love these inchies and especially the beading. I found you from the atcsforall forum, and I'm glad I did. Wonderful work throughout!
