Give us an inch!

This week it's the turn of Cazro to choose the ANYTHING GOES challenge at Try it on Tuesday. She would like us to use AT LEAST 3 INCHIES within our design.

I decided to have a go at creating an inchie cube hanging.  I'd been meaning to have a go at this for  while so what better time than for this challenge. 

Once I had got my head around creating the template for the cubes I was away.  Trouble is they are so tiny it's difficult to know how to decorate them.   I coloured the card with a Big and Juicy pad then sprayed with gold Spray and Sparkle before assembling them.  I made holes in the top and bottom panels to thread the cord through and added beads as I went.  When all assembled I used a clear embossing pen to draw some freestyle patterns which I then embossed using cosmic shimmer black sparkle embossing powder.
We'd love you to join us for the challenge this week so please check out the challenge blog and get some inspiration from our fantastic DT.
Thanks for visiting me today.
Love, Pat xx
