Theme Thursday.....Miniature Art - Moos or Inchies!

This week’s theme is “miniature art”! Use collage images, rubber stamps, paints, fancy paper , embellishments or any other art supply to make your “miniature”creations! I chose to do paper piercing for my miniature art, using white cord card stock. This is my first "inchies" as they are called because they measure 1" x 1".

Wednesday Stampers.....First letter first name

This week’s challenge at Wednesday Stampers is to make some artwork with the first letter of your first name. You are completely free to use this letter as you want, for example make a feature of the letter itself, or use a word that starts with the same letter as the first one of your name.
My name starts with the letter "C"....... so out of the letter "C" merged a clown on an ATC. JUST FOR FUN
