WT166 Embracing Your Inner Creature


A few weeks ago I picked up a 1" square punch at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 price! What a deal! I see the Inchies (introduced by Ellen Huston) have been all the rage, but since I don't have the extra $ to invest in the supplies so like many others, I am improvising to still partcipate!

Well - look how cute the Doodlefactory Creatures are (small) just like the large ones at Starving Artist Stamps - unmounted stamps, the full set of both (10 of each) small (approx 1") & large (approx 2 1/4") are just $24.95! I have a few ideas brewing for these 'sets' of creatures and this week's Ways to Use it inspired this card to feature more than just one creature!

WT166 ways to use inchies on your project. I colored my creatures, leaving some portions uncolored and paired it with a printed quote by Albert Camus, "Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is". DH said he didn't get it, but my interpretation is that there are so many people who try to be someone or something else they are not; they care about what others think of them, are not comfortable in their own skin or have a low self-esteem. Well to me - these creatures seem to be embracing their uniqueness, they are one-of-a-kind and they love themselves.

They crack me up - I was smiling & chuckling as I was coloring them & putting my card together. I hope you have a smiliar reaction looking at it. Pin It
