Inchie Love

Hi ya'll... I'm uploading my first inchie art. I decided to do an alphabet series for my first inchie collection and so I started with the letter A. A is for Apple. I isolated part of a stamp to fit the apple and also used masking to fit the word apple across the top of the inchie. Can ya' tell I'm super tired tonight? No Boing Boings or Yippee Kai Yai Yays or nothin'. I'm just getting over that cold/flu bug I had last week and I still get that washed out feeling by the end of the day. Plus I did not sleep AGAIN last night. Grrr. I colored the bg with my Copic sky blue marker (I'm sorry for no specifics I don't have everything right in front of me so just a quick post tonight) to start with. I also added stickles to the apples and the leaves. I added some bling to the corner to balance out the bling. I also attached the inchie to a black matte 1 and 1/4 inch big. Just a little bigger than the inchie to add a frame around it. Nothing special here. These are fun I could see them getting really addictive. I used the Apple of my Eye stamp from the retired SU set Farm Fresh (2004-2005 Catty). I think SU produced some of its best stamp sets from 2003-2005. I've purchased a bunch from these two catalog years off of SCS and eBay. I never even heard of stamping up and scrapbooking until 2005 the year I became a demo. I know wierd huh? The rest is history because I'm definitely hooked and a major player (err aka hoarder) now. hehe. My photog skills leave much to be desired. I just viewed my post and ya can't tell this is an inchie it's so large already. I cropped it too and this makes it appear a larger scale. IRL its 1x1 inch in size I promise.
