One of the promises I made to myself for 2013 is to do more crafting. I am, however, Queen of Procrastination, and if I don't have a specific project to work on then I tend to just ....well... do absolutely nothing at all!! My good friends over at the bears blogged about a challenge they're taking part in called 'Every Inchie Monday'. Details of this challenge can be found HERE where lots of inspirational words are used for the weekly 'Inchie challenge' - which is basically to create a piece of artwork on a base of one inch square.
Goodness me - crafting on a square measuring 1 inch by 1 inch is very flippin' difficult! I have a brilliant punch which I thought would do the trick and be the perfect size - however on measuring the punch out I found out that they were more than twice the size of the inchie size we are supposed to be working with! EEK! Ah well - it was a challenge after all! This week's inspirational word is "star".
Anyway, here's my 'effort'. A square inch of textured card stock, sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist in pewter for a little shimmer factor. I then paper pricked the rear of the inchie with a paper pricking tool into a star shape and used some pink embroidery floss to stitch the design and edge around the card.
Here's the tadahh!!
