Inchie Arts is sponsoring the team at Etsy Inspired, and the fun gals there asked the Inchie Arts design team members to play along. I wasn't familiar with this challenge blog, but I can guarantee that I'll be going back! Each week, they spotlight one Etsy shop (this week is Queen of Arts Cakes; she has two shops here and here) . So once I went in and really absorbed all the gorgeous creations she has, I decided to us this as my inspiration:
Can you believe those are cookies? Aren't they gorgeous? There's no way I would ever be able to eat those - they're just too amazing.
So I started out with a Light Gray Twinchie Square for my base. I stamped Papertrey Ink's Year Of Flowers: Sweet Peas on it using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then went to town with my Copics. The fantastic quality of the matboard used on all Inchie Arts products lends itself beautifully to lots of blending, allowing you to be able to achieve some great shadows and highlights. I used a Copic Multiliner in black to draw in the frame, and a Copic to color the edges of the Twinchie. Here's a closer look:
Inchie Notes Peach/Pink Set. These note cards are perfect when paired with Inchies, Inchie + and Twinchies. I also added some texture to it by running it through my die cut machine with the PTI Picnic Plaid Impression Plate. It's topped off with a smidgen of Hibiscus Burst Bitty Dots Ribbon (also from PTI).
Stop over to the Etsy Inspired blog to participate in the challenge! It's a fun one that you won't want to miss!
Have a wonderful weekend! Be well.
