Every Inchie Monday -- Etna

For this week the word is Etna. I have been to Mount Etna, but trying to portray it on an inch square was slightly more challenging. For the sewn one I felted some Merino wool and embroidered what I hoped would look like molten lava with embroidery silks. The stampbord one I painted and then scratched the paint away to give the lava flow.

Some of your challenges would defeat me before I had started. Both these are so good but I love the stampbord one.

Fantastic takes on the theme you were given. Loved the effects of the lava with the silks.

How clever to use scratching to uncover the layer below. Kind of like a volcano brings up the layers below! Nice!

two great inchies - I love the texture and colour of your embroidered one.

It was hard to do something different this week....your pair are really both very good & make me glad I don't live near a volcano!
