I’m a coloring nerd. You guys know that! And I’m always trying out stuff to see what else I can color on! Let’s take these Inchie Arts products on a test drive!
Inchies, Twinchies, and ATCs
I was blessed to be sent some products from Lisa over at Inchie Arts to use for a class at my LSS. The class never actually happened (insert big sad face!) – but does that stop me? Heck no! I had fun trying out different mediums on these twinchies (3×3) and ATCs (ATCs). You can easily pop these onto cards – or make other items out of them like I did. Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
Why try out these products instead of cutting them out yourself? As you saw in the video, the surface is different from your regular papers. It’ll handle your mediums a bit differently. Copics sink into the soft surface and blend pretty nicely!
I tried my hand at some rough zentangling – I think I need to take a class! LOL! But I colored this one with pencils, and that worked great to blend with baby oil and a blending stump. The stamp is from Rubber Moon – Sunny Carvalho is the designer, I just love Sunny’s quirky style, it’s so unique! The class I almost taught was with this line of stamps…but alas, that didn’t happen. But big thanks to Rubber Moon for sending me some stamps to play with!
And last but not least- I finally got to use my Waffle Flower Lotus stamp set! This one has been in my stash since they sent it to me a while back for the release (I used the shark that day – you gotta see that penny slider card if you missed that when it went live!). And the color scheme was in my head since I saw the set…and I’ve decided it’ll be the jumping off point to redecorate my bedroom and bathroom! This piece created with ATCs (turned sideways) and Clean Color Pens will be in my bathroom to inspire me to get busy on the renovation this fall – and I need to treat it with some of this product to make it waterproof first! I used this stamp set for the scripture.
I hope you enjoyed this fun little test of these Inchies….I’d been looking for an open slot here on the blog to share them, as well as lots of the stamps shown. Note that these were all stamps sent to me by the manufacturers – I’m so grateful when companies share things for me to try out!
Woohoo, I found time to get it done! I have had these butterflies staring at me for so long – and when I saw the impressions made by the die I showed in the video – I got this one out! I diecut it several times, and then watercolored it…
After watercoloring with my Holbein paints, I tapped a Versamark pad on it and dipped it in clear embossing powder and heat set it….then dipped it again while hot, reheated…and repeated the process til the whole piece had a nice thick and even coating!
