Inchies & JFF

Its been a funny week for me lots of rushing around and hospital visits, as last Sunday the Diamond had lots of pain which turned out to be 'Kidney Stones'. So having spent Sunday at A&E with him he was admitted and eventually came home Thursday. Not quite the end of the story as he will have to go and have them zapped. Anyway we had a nice quiet weekend with lovely sunny weather, no rain to speak of as was promised by the BBC. Over at JFF it is a new month and a new theme 'Size Matters' to set us off Neet chose 'Inchies', now whilst I have seen inchies it is very new to me I did rack my brains to no avail (probably still tired LOL) I did find some inchie stamps I had bought once upon a time so started by using these. Well it turned out to be a very bright and gaudy tag LOL. Not quite sure how this happened but it did. I Used my big and juicy inks with a brayer to cover the tag then stippled through sequin waste and stamped swirls in purple then a swosh of glitter glaze (you can see where it strated to get gaudy (is that how you spell it?). The inchie stamped have been highlighted with white gel pen to lift them. To attach the inchie stamps I machined sewed and machine sewed added ruffled ribbon and hearts, flowers then a bit of bling (of course). So here it is my very in the face inchie tag. Hope it brings a smile to you if nothing else. Thanks for dropping by. XOXO

I don't think it's gaudy at all, I think the colours are fabulous, love the addition of the machine sewn ribbons too.

Fab inchies, great idea to enhance them with the white outlines.

Thanks for joining us again this week over on JFF - Sam xxx

First of all hope "the diamond" is soon feeling much better.
Love your inchie tag. Orange compliments purple so that is bang on with the colour. Love the stamps you used for the inchies. Love the subtle colouring too.
