Water Lily Inchie Card
I got my Hero Arts (HA) Water Lily stamp in from Stampin Treasures http://www.stampintreasures.com/ the day before and so I had an idea. I inked the stamp on a Rubber Stamp Paint Box long variegated ink pad with green on the stem. I loved the look, sponged, yellow over it (ordinarily I would have sponged the colors first, but I was working on a trial run and it happened to be turning into what I wanted), sponged some orange on, then added a bit of red to the right, a bit of blue to the left and was satisfied. I added the dragonflies and stamped the butterfly on red card stock (CS) from the Clear HA "Share Laughter". I popped the butterfly up. I had my finished piece... YAY! So what was I going to do with these? I was drawn to a piece of green CS that was in my scrap box and taped the inchies down, using a piece of CS as a straight edge. I was really surprised at how they lined up... I'm not used to this being an easy job. I taped this to a notecard and pulled the soft yellow Cubblebug swirls CS out and taped it to the bottom. I thought of the green sheer ribbon in my drawer, pulled it out and decided to tie it on the left side adding yellow gems to the ribbon. I put a glue dot under the bow to hold it in place. I had a great timel putting this together. This might not be my only inchie.. They're rather fun!
