Alphabet swap inchies

Okay, I did my inchies for a swap I joined. There were 26 spots and each person that signs up does 26 of their chosen letter. When we are done, we will each have a full alphabet of inchies. How fun is that?!?!

Well, I signed up for E. I had to order some blue suede paper for the backgrounds...I just had to!! I mounted it on Crafty Board. Then, I printed off the main images and cut them out. Used the silhouette to cut out the E, heart and music note. Added ink to the edges of the heart and white highlights to the music notes. Glued it all together and edged with gold leafing pen. Here is my result for E...

Then, today, there were still a few spots left to be filled. I had mine done, so I decided to sign up for another letter. How crazy is that? I love these little things. I love the challenge of trying to fit what you want onto a tiny little square. It is just fun for me.
So, I adhered Light Totally Tan cardstock to Crafty Board and then stamped part of a large nest (Oxford Impressions) onto it with Versafine ink. Stamped my N with India Ink Black. Finally, I colored in the eggs with Twinkling H20s. This is the result for N...

Such fun!!!
I am headed to bed now. I know that my poll has closed, but I am tired right now. I will post a new one first thing in the morning!!
Have a wonderful evening bloggers!
