STVABACCB08 - Friendship Blooms

I love inchies! So when I saw the challenge on Stamp TV I had to play!
For my 'anything but a card' I used 4 inches to create a faux tile by adhering them to individual inchie boards. Then I mounted them to a piece of diecut black cardstock. (What would we do w/o Nestabilities?) Although you can't see it in the photo, my inchies were 'glazed' by inking each inchie with VersaMark ink, and sponging them with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy distress ink. Next, I embossed them with clear embossing powder. IRL, they do look like little tiles!
I decided to use my little tiles to embellish a little birthday happy for my stash... What fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. They do look like little tiles! As a matter of fact I wouldn't mind having tile work that looks like that in my kitchen! I love the look of inchies too but rarely play with them.
