You can also attach them to a piece of paper with double sided removable tape, but it is more expensive....
Thanks for posting them

Elena, when you say "No stickers" do you mean don't use stickers as the emphasis on your Inchies, or absolutely no stickers whatsoever period? Because if I can't use some stickers, I'm going to have to withdraw from your swap. My little fish are stickers and a few of my shells are stickers, but they aren't the only thing on my Inchie. Could you please clarify this for me? Thanks, hon.

Elena
02-13-2009, 09:05 PM
smokeysmom, no stickers at all, sorry.

As I have quite a bit of left over card when I turn an A4 sheet into ATCs, I spent a while yesterday chopping it diligently into 1x1 inch squares and then decided I might as well try some inchies.

They're harder than they look! Especially when you cut before drawing - trying not to bleed my pen into my inking was no mean feat, I tell you, as well as trying not to smear my ink when holding the card in place (luckily my ink dries really fast).

Anyhow, here, if they are acceptable to you, are 9 1x1 inch pictures of sea animals.

20987

Squid, Great White Shark, Flying fish
Spanish Shawl Nudibranch, Nudibranch of unknown species, shrimp
Greenspot nudibranch, blue angel slug, crab

Nudibranches are gorgeous creatrures! If I'd discovered them sooner the whol 9 would have been them. I have failed to render them well, alas. But these inches DO look better in reality. Neon markers don't scan very well.

If you want them in the swap, PM me your address and I might even rustle up a nudibranch ATC to travel with them.

Kat

Elena
02-14-2009, 06:31 PM
Welcome to the swap LadyWatersnake and Lemurkat (yes, I want your inchies :)). I'll pm you my address.

Jitterbug, Jonquil, and Lemurkat, all your inchies are perfect!

boatbird
02-15-2009, 06:02 AM
Lemurkat they are gorgeous- I hope I get one! :wubclub: and Jonquil too- gorgeous!

they were fun to make - everyone's are so colourful

MACE
02-15-2009, 03:39 PM
I'd like to join if someone will inform me how you package an inchie. I've never done one. I assume it is 1 inch by 1 inch right?

RoOskie
02-15-2009, 03:57 PM
MACE, I usually put 6 inchies to one atc sleeve and put staples between them to keep them from bunching up. Does that make sense? And yes, inchies are 1 x 1 inch. Fun Fun!!

Elena
02-15-2009, 04:04 PM
You can also use removable, two side tape.

corduroy cat
02-15-2009, 04:31 PM
just an FYI.... i received some inchies in a swap recently that were taped directly to masking tape and the backs on all were unreadable once i removed them. so i think the sleeve is a good idea!

Elena
02-15-2009, 04:43 PM
The masking tape and the blue painters tape will damage the inchies. Those kind of tapes are supposed to be "removable" only for 5 to 10 days. I have never have problem with the removable double sided tape.

MACE
02-16-2009, 01:07 AM
removeable tape looks like regular scotch tape, but instead of a green label thing it is a blue one.

Elena
02-16-2009, 08:44 AM
You are in Mace, welcome!

smokeysmom
02-16-2009, 08:22 PM
Ok Elena, I'll hand draw them, but I don't draw very well, so they'll be more fantasy-like than real. I'll give it my best shot:)

Elena
02-16-2009, 08:35 PM
I am glad you are going to give it a shot!

Thanks corduroy cat! Great inchies!

RoOskie

Elena, I have my inchies completed. I just have to wait for my DH to come home so he can fix the scanner. I'll get them in the mail...hopefully tomorrow!!!

I received inchies today from ladywatersnake and wolfttlo, what for the extras!

egrobeck
02-22-2009, 12:34 AM
wow! everyone's inchies are just awesome! mine are done and will go in the mail this week - here's a peek (I'm keeping 2 and there's 1 extra as a thank you for our host) - and they're much nicer in reality - the background is more bluegreen/turquoise - the flash washes out the color of the lumiere paints and texture a lot.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3354/3299458194_6fcf8243e2.jpg

oops, after posting this I realized the inchie in the upper left corner is upside down - aiy. it's a mermaid. sorry about that!

Elena
02-22-2009, 07:39 AM

Cute inchies, simple and pretty!

lemurkat
02-22-2009, 09:43 PM
Because a couple of my inchies are a little disappointing, I'm sending a bonus three nudibranchs (I love nudibranches). Feel free to keep 3 for yourself or trade them all out if you need to.

lemurkat
02-22-2009, 11:44 PM
Here they are now. My name and animal's name are on the back. Will be posted possibly early next week, as they have missed this week's monday mail-out. And I'm not broke!

Six of these are Nudibranches, I had trouble finding common names for them. What brilliant creatures!

smokeysmom
02-25-2009, 04:23 PM
I've completed my inchies and put them in the mail. Sorry, our scanner is down. I covered a piece of thick kraft cardstock with gesso, then used green, yellow and blue acrylic paints and Angel Mists, then I laid down real shells and shot the background with gold spray paint, so when I lifted the shells off, images were left behind of clams, starfish, etc. On some I put tiny pieces of beach glass or tiny shells and/or itsy bitsy puzzle pieces the color of coral and green sea plants. Hope you like 'em:)

Elena
02-25-2009, 04:26 PM
Wow smokemom! I can't wait to see them :jiggy:

REceived mine today!
From:
Messamker - colourful coral
bubblecup - cute clownfish
Kreationkween - awesome squid
BusyB - delicate shell
Mingo - shiny seahorse
Jonquil - bright fish
someone-stone - Cute crab
betzzz - glitzy fishy
Amyfaerie - little crab

All are splendid, but I will have to comment, Elena, that aside from not getting a card from you :( I am not sure on the use of the double-sided tape. most of the inchies peeled off okay - particularly the oens on sturdy glossy card, but the little clownfish on lighter card almost tore :( And I amanged to strip the backs off two of the other ones so that I had trouble reading the information. I tried to peel them as carefully as I could - but maybe not carefully enough. I am now going to slide them into a trading card sleeve for displaying in my album.

Thanks all!

Kat

Thanks for letting me know lemurkat, I definetely going to stop using the tape.

I'm always stuck with how to send them. Teh first time I stapled them into a plastic sleeve. The second I simply slid them into an old sticker envelope (you know, the kidn you buy your stickers in). Jean, I think it was, had a good suggestion involving taping a layer of folded (and therefore unsticky) tape across the front of them. Which would work with cellophane as well, I imagine.
