Small Things

 Hello everyone, our new topic at Try It On Tuesday is 'Small Things' so it's scaling down on the cards...and other things too!

The Design Team have lots of inspiration for you here.

I have made a small card to send wishes to a friend I don't see very often.

I used a Distress Ink lid to make little frame - rubbed over the pad and then used a water brush to drag some of the colour into the middle.(a tip from my friend Sarah) I used Lavinia Stamps for the little scene and the words came from my box of quotes.

I coloured the leaves and dragonfly with metallic paint and then used a brush to spatter some sparkle too.

I hope that will join us at TIOT this time, I do love working small, as you can see here. Anything goes long it's small!

Here are two of my small journals. The smallest fits inside the tin..and here are some of the Christmas Cracker playing cards that I am altering for the 100day project

Thanks for looking, Chris
