Argh..........Inchies

I was asked to join in an 'Inchies' swap the theme Oriental.

Argh........never again.........it was a nightmare


They haven't photographed very well as they are embossed and shiny and have gold on them




It took me over three hours to stamp, paint, stamp again, emboss, and add collage gold on them.

They do look better in real life - but I won't be doing them again - life's too short

lol I kind of gave up on inchies after a while too.... I think its something we all need to try out and then decide on whether we run like hell or join in again lol...

I'm suprised you hated doing them though looking at the results here...they look great. I'd have more of a problem with the theme as I find Asian extremely difficult to portray well, but you captured it really well.
