Inchies & ATC artventures

A recent question made me search for some of my inchies. I arranged and squeezed as many as I could across the scanner's screen. Click on the picture to get a closer look. You may notice backgrounds that scream "ticket stub" and yes, I've used those for instant background art. I've also used discarded catalog cards from the library. Anything works as long as it's 1 x 1.

These will soon be on their way across the ocean. The color "pink" was the theme for this ATC trade and I'm happy with the results.

I'm behind on mail that I intended to send out a couple weeks ago. If you're reading this post and you have an idea you may be one of the "receivers," please know that something will be coming your way soon!

A couple nights ago I got in the mood to create some ATCs for a trade I'm doing with Soulbrush. I went outside my box because the main color was pink. I usually don't do pink very well but I survived! I didn't break out in hives or get fever. LOL! I think I may have started trouble though. I casually asked Soulbrush if she'd ever made inchies. You know, those 1 x 1 inch squares of collaged, painted, stamped, whatever art pieces? She asked me a couple questions about them. I think she might be cutting squares right now. LOL!

I love those ATCs Stampmaiden, lucky Soulbrush. Inchies? never heard of them? They look fun though.

Stampmaiden said...

BT, I mailed out your ATCs on Friday so hopefully you'll get them next week. Inchies are big fun! Soulbrush is hooked!
Soulbrush, your ATCs are off in the mail with a little surprise! Hopefully you'll get it next week.
Glad you're having fun with those inchies! Can't wait to see them!
La Poeta, if you'd like to swap, that's great! It's a fun challenge to make stuff fit on a 1 x 1 square. Let me know which ones you're interested in.
