Every Inchie Monday -- Umbra

This week another very unusual word on Every Inchie Monday, for us to get our brains working. I went for the easy option on both of mine, as moving house has taken over. The moving firm said they had never seen so many boxes. Now to find room to unpack them all

Tag Tuesday -- Autumn Extravaganza

On Tag Tuesday Glorious Autumn is this weeks challenge.  I used a previously stamped piece of tissue paper for the background of the tag, a bit cut off a failed piece of work in the middle, which was sprayed inks through a stencil. I then adhered some pressed Autumn leaves from last year, plus a bit torn out of a gardening magazine at the bottom. After I had scanned it, I placed an acrylic tag on the top to preserve the leaves.

Every Inchie Monday -- Ungual

Where does Trillian find these words for us to illustrate on Every Inchie Monday. I had to look this one up, and then had trouble trying to do one in stitch. As I am so short of time with the house move on Friday I stamped the hooves of  a rhino and embossed in black. The sewn one is a bears claw in brown leather and stitched claws. Notice I said stamped the hooves not stamped on the hooves of a rhino, I think I would have been in big trouble if I had, not that there are many roaming around Wales.

Tag Tuesday -- All the colours of the rainbow

All the colours of the rainbow is the theme this week on Tag Tuesday. I painted the tag with rainbow colours, and stamped up some leaves with different colours. I added  two small pictures, and then stuck on the leaves. I found some rainbow ribbon and added that.


The picture below is of some leaves in the garden, it's a decorative vine


This rainbow came out as I was writing this

Every Inchie Monday -- Thistle

I don't like them in the garden, but doing some inchies featuring them for Every Inchie Monday was great. I made my usual sewn one, and two drawn ones, one with water colours, and the other a Scottish type symbol one.

Tag Tuesday -- Opposites

On Tag Tuesday opposites is the theme. Lots of things spring to mind, but with my now limited resources I went for old and young. The tag is coloured with distress inks, stamped with my favourite script stamp, and the images adhered to the background. I added some lace and flowers to finish it off.

Try it on Tuesday Guest designer piece. Animals, wild or pets.

Avril on TIOT has kindly asked me to be guest designer for this challenge and this is what I made. I love elephants, and decided to make a wall hanging. I started off with some corrugated card, distressed it a bit and painted it with Fresco paints. I stamped some elephants and cut them out. I stamped  Indian images on the background, and stuck the elephants on top.
The panel was then stuck onto some card, to which I adhered some elephant and Indian ribbon ( Braid ) to, I hung some elephant charms to the bottom, and some lace and a metal embellishment to the top. Some sari ribbon to hang it with and I was finished.
