Wee & Whimsical Wednesday



Today's Wee & Whimsical Wednesday card is Burberry inspired. I love the classic combination of khaki & black - it's timeless (and a clothing combination that I tend to turn to a lot!) It's really easy to achieve this classic look with Inchies Arts notecards, Twinchies and Inchie Squares.

I started with a 3" square notecard in Wheat. I stamped the background with Papertrey's Background Basics: Diamonds set with Chai ink (part of the Vintage Tea Dye Duo). I then stamped my Black Twinchie square with the same stamp and Fresh Snow ink. Because of the artist-quality matboard that these are made with, it takes the ink perfectly, allowing for a gorgeous contrast.

I then pulled out two Dark Cream Inchie Squares and stamped them with PTI's Outlines Alphabet in True Black. I colored them in with a white Prismacolor pencil, then highlighted the coloring with Pearlized Top Coat from Smooch. (Don't forget my trick about turning Inchie Arts squares of all sizes onto the diagonal! You gain instant visual interest as well as more space.) The edges are inked with PTI Chamomile ink.

I layered them and adhered with my Glue Arts PermaTac cartridge. The Inchies and Twinchies adhere very easily and accept many types of glue without any problem. I added some Liquid Pearls to accent, as well as more True Black ink in the edges. It's a quick and easy notecard that really has a WOW factor.

Have an amazing day! Be well -
