inchie #10 - Engrave

Helloooooo!  The prompt this week is ENGRAVE for the Inchie Challenge over *here*.   Luckily I have some Stampbord inchie squares which are ideal for engraving and etching.  After a dig around I found a Crafty Individuals stamp to use.  It looks a bit 'scrappy' I'm afraid.  Its a case of better in real life that blown up big hahahahaha!!!!!


I painted bale blue acrylic onto the square before stamping the geode/shell with Archival Ink.  I didn't have the right tools for the etching so poked away with a pin to take the blue off, which is why it looks scratchy.

Do pop over to have a look and see what the others have done.  Thank you for looking today, HUGS xxx

I thought you did a WONDERFUL job, especially when you didn't have the exact right tool. Good example of the prompt, too.

BTW, thanks for letting me know about the Craft Barn link. I thought I was crazy (grin).
