Inchie Roses

Hi there.  There's still time to play at
CAS Mix Up.

Lovely Joanna is hosting this month and she chose....
My mixed media are Inchies, Stamping, Watercoloring, Embossing with a die

I inked this Magenta stamp with Distress Markers and used my
waterbrush to move the ink.  The MISTI makes it easy to ink multiple colors.

After all the stamping was done, I pulled some of the color
from the leaves to add a light wash.

Then came the scary part.

I was so afraid of messing up the whole thing by cutting.

Fortunately, it all worked out fine this time.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Our Design Team and Guest Designer Stephanie have some
awesome inspiration for you.
I hope you check them out and join us at
CAS Mix Up.

Challenge closes on the 24th.

Gorgeous card, Bonnie. Cutting the images into inchies and backing onto black is really effective. xx

Beautiful floral spread over your inchies Bonnie!

Beautiful flower tiles, Bonnie. After all your wonderful watercoloring it would be a bit nerve wracking to then have to cut it up into 6 inches, but it did turn out beautifully. TFS Hugs..Nancy

I love how you stamped/watercolored the roses, Bonnie! They're so pretty! I totally understand how you felt before cutting up the beautiful panel. I feel the same way when I spatter over a finished panel. :-)
The impression you made with the frame die is subtle but enough to give a complete look. Wonderful idea!

Gorgeous flowers Bonnie! Love the colours and design with your special way of pulling colour. It looks fabulous cut into the inchies and backed in black. xxxx

What a stunning interpretation of the challenge Bonnie - to stamp and then cut. Love the subtle texture with the embossing, and the wonderful script on the sentiment is the perfect accent
I know the feeling about cutting - I have made wedding and bridesmaids gowns and the first cut is always nerve wracking!

Jo said...

The first cut is the deepest ...I'm singing, LOL. You're so right. After making this amazingly beautiful watercolour bouquet it is scary to CHOP it up, but you achieved a beauty here. Definitely a special card! xx

Sweet bouquet of flowers Bonnie, lovely design.

JoAnn said...

Your watercolored roses are so pretty. Love how you cut them into 6 inchies and backed them with black. It had to make you nervous cutting the lovely design after you did a beautiful job coloring them.
TFS and have a wonderful week.

This lovely stamp seems made for inchies! Just works really well.
And as always, beautiful coloring.

You have nerves of steel, Bonnie! and the measuring skills of an architect! Beautifully done!

Marcia Hill said...

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Bonnie! Your water coloring is sooooo it!! :0)

Nstiz said...

I love your use of inchies, Bonnie. The black matting really makes your beautifully painted roses pop. I’m not so sure I could have lined this up so perfectly. Beautifully done.

Love the "window" look on this Bonnie. I can imagine being scared to cut it too. Looks perfect though and is beautiful.

Barb Ghig said...

Absolutely gorgeous card, Bonnie! Your watercolored roses are so pretty, and I love the impact of the inchies on your design! Great idea to add the embossed stitching to frame it, too! Stunning work, my friend!

Bobby said...

I honestly didn't see this before I made my card, Bonnie. Which of course means I love yours since mine is similar. I'll be putting it in the gallery as soon as I get it photographed.

Another wonderful example of your masterful inking / stamping / watercoloring with the MISTI, Bonnie. Nothing to be nervous about... you cut up the panel perfectly into inchies. Love the design. xx

Mac Mable said...

Yes no wonder you didn't want to cut up your beautiful water colouring but it was sure worth it, as your card is stunning Bonnie x

Another stunning creation. A nice idea to cut an image into smaller tiles.
