Inchie Arts with Dina *Day 1*

I am so excited to be sharing a new collaboration with the SUPER talented Dina Kowal this week!  For each day of our 3-day collabo we will be playing with the same size mat board squares by Inchie Arts.  Today Dina and I are both using the 2" Twinchie Squares.

This was my first time working with the Inchie Arts mat board squares and let me tell you, I'm in LOVE!  I wanted to try watercoloring on this surface and it worked perfectly.  Because of the thickness of the squares, I did not have to worry about "curling" or getting the surface too wet.

I began by stamping Penny Black 30-159 Dahlias onto the Twinchies using Ranger Archival Black Ink.  I colored the flowers and backgrounds with Faber-Castell Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils using the same technique as I did in THIS video.  The embossed background paper, Penny Black EP402 Lattice White, was inked with Palette Hybrid Inks and Distress Inks and I added the Twinchies with pop dots. The completed size of each card is approximately 4 x 4 inches.

Νo main prοblem - they also take diѕh
washing, ocean front homes, and dеsκ dancing (according to
the menu, which іs 100 % of witty tidbits. The publican ordered Daisy, his barmaid, to convey some celebratory mixed drinks. Stir in onions, celery, chopped yellow bell pepper and cook dinner until such time as tender.

Love these! The matboard watercolors sooooooo nicely - love the bright colors and the variety in your set. I think I need some dahlias in my life...!

(You'll probably delete it but I love the spam comment above mine... desk dancing?!!
