MelJen’s Designs Challenge #145-Inchies

My friend Barb is hostess of the current challenge on the MelJen’s Designs Challenge Blog and I thought I’d surprise her a bit and participate for a change. *Ü* And I got to wander around the store and find an image I thought might work well for the challenge of using inchies on the card.

Here’s what I came up with:


I really like this button flower that I found. It’s called Little Layered Flowers Button Daisy. There is a whole set you can buy, or you can pick and chose the items that most appeal to you. For now, I just picked up this flower. It was fun to color with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I like the Spring time colors in the Doodlebug 6x6 paper stack. And I tried to do something a little different by angling the larger square like a diamond. It’s a little big, though. Sigh. Still I think it looks okay. I like the clean and simple lines. The inchie squares are popped up with foam dots. I like the texture of the polka dots, too. It was fun playing along, if nothing else. You might want to try it, too. Who knows…maybe you could win a digital image!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a SUPER start to your weekend.

Love the papers and colors you chose for the challenge. Even though you thought the square is "too big", I like the way it leads the eye to the edges of the card. It fills the space and sets off the images perfectly.

Thank you for joining us this week at Meljen’s Designs for our Inchies challenge!
