Mirror Mirror...


At the crop this week Pauline Butcher was telling Bev all about Inchies, Twinchies, Munchies (actually made that up) but the other two are real and I believe there are a few others. Little bits of artwork 1" x 1" and 1.5 x 1.5 so though I might have a play myself and this is what I came up with...



I'm really happy with it. A cheapy wooden mirror from a boot sale (courtesy of Bev) and all I've done is ink it up with Distress Inks, I tried using the Dylusions but they just sat on top of the wood so should you want to use them best to give your wood a right good sanding down first. 
Now to the Inchies. Mine are just 1" squares of chipboard and this time I was able to blitz them with my Dylusions in matching colours to the mirror frame, wafting the different colours diagonally so they blended with no harsh edges. Once they were dry I stamped them with the Inspired by Da Vinci stamp 'Script'.
Then got my fine liner pen out and doodled some leave's across the top corner highlighted them with a white pen and gave them a bit of extra colour with distress ink.
(pity it doesn't show up to well)
Finally stamped the BEAUtanicals Teasels stamp at the bottom...


Really hope you like it...

p:s there is a white card on the mirror as when I took the first picture all 
I could see was me, so I had to save you from that trauma...
