October....

...has arrived, the nights are starting to draw in and boy is it getting cold at night? its lovely during the day, but, come 7pm its like someone has switched the fire off! lol

Its SCD day today and as its the first of the month its also a new Challenge....so, for October, its

INCHIES
yep, those lovely little inch square pieces of art.....

and its Dawns' turn to choose the theme this week and she's chosen "Oriental".

Here's my piece:-



I promise you its only 1" square but looks enormous here!! - the background is a piece of white card which was stamped with oriental blossom which was then coloured in using watercolour pencils, the oriental lady was stamped onto a piece of card and shaded using the pencils and then added to the inchie....the text is computer generated. I added glossy accents to hi-light the blossoms and the text and also coated the image....a few little gems to the centres of the flowers and an inked edge or two finished off the piece.

Its also the first week for our two new dt members, so do pop on over to SCD and see if you can be tempted to join us.
