Every Inchie Monday

The power went out tonight.  The entire neighborhood was pitch black and there I sat at the table with a candle and flashlight trying to make my first inchie for the Every Inchie Monday project.  I had the one inch square.  No one told me it was hard to be creative in the dark.  LOL!  Finally after an hour the power came back and instead of going to bed as I planned,  I shot back to the table.  And here she is.  Ladies and Germs, I present, Queen Bee.....



Here she is looking like Humpty Dumpty.  With a some stamping and snipping everything came together.

The theme was "eclectic" so this had to be an inchie with loads of personality.  I had to edge it with a gold leaf pen.  After all, we're talking about  royalty here -Queen, remember?  And because she's royalty, I had to incorporate some kind of visual to show off her presence.  No room for a red carpet so a swiveling tag of a door was created.


A little sparkle was added onto her dress and later, the rose.
 

Small format but BIG fun!  Go to http://www.everyinchiemonday.com/ for links of other participants who are inching along the way!

LOVE your inchie Linda!

We had a blackout in our neighborhood a couple of weeks ago that lasted for HOURS! I finally just went to bed when I realized how many things we need (or want) electricity for. HA!

Amazing! It is such a fantastic inchie and I loved hearing about how it came to bee (sorry, but I couldn't resist the pun).

She's lovely!

She is so cute. I think the darkness adds to the magic of the Queen's powers! She waves her magic wand/septer and there was LIGHT eventually!
