Inchie Swap

Hi everyone!
I am sharing some inchies I have made for a swap. We had to make 9 Christmas themed inchies. I managed to find stamps & dies to fit onto the inchies. Used DI to colour, The letters were die cut from red & green card. Edged each inchie with Inka Gold.
I had a small tin that some mints came in - the inchies fitted into it just right. I wondered if I could do anything with it as it looked like this :

I decided to give it a go! I gave it 2 coats of white gesso, making sure to let them dry inbetween coats. I then started covering with my favourite Inka Gold! I started with gold, then copper & green. Polishing each layer. I then stamped Merry Christmas onto the lid with Stazon.
Here's the result :

I'm really pleased with it.
I wrapped the inchies in some green tissue & placed them in the tin. I hope my swap partner likes them.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Bev this is amazing the stamps you have used are fantastic. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. I've never made inchies Bev. Yours are a lovely beautiful set and what a great attention to detail. I'm sure the recipient will be delighted. I really like what you've done with the tin. It looks completely different from how it started off and is a lovely way to present your lovely inchies. Barbxx
