Weekly Homework - Inchie & Twinchie

On Every Inchie Monday, the word is Engrave. I have a square inch of a scratch art sheet, with the initials of my blog etched on it.
На Every Inchie Monday ключевое слово гравировать. У меня квадратный дюйм из специального листа для процарапывания, на котором нацарапаны инициалы моего блога.




The Twinchies Challenge blog has Time. I have a sundial.
На Twinchies Challenge ключевое слово время. У меня солнечные часы.

    1. Thanks Wendy! I'm not even sure whether it qualifies as an engraving.

  4. Зоя, оригинально, как всегда! MS = не только my Specialist, но и известный дизайнер Марта Стюарт. Может, неслучайно?;)

    Солнечные часы, да еще и с квиллингом, вообще покорили!!!

    1. :) Но мы не такие дорогие, как Марта :)
      Часы покорили меня тоже - полностью идея мужа.
      Спасибо, Оля!

  5. I like the "monogram". I almost went that direction - some of my pre-sketches were my initials! I don't know what scratch art sheets are, though! I think I need to go Google that =)

    1. They are completely covered with black (not certain what that soft surface is made from). Use a toothpick, needle, whatever.... to scratch the surface. Mine have fluorescent rainbow colours underneath. I'm sure there are sheets with all sorts of colours underneath.
      Thanks Jenn!

  10. Hi Zoe. I wish I had thought of initials, well done you!!!! In answer to your question about stampboard. Its about 3mm thick and is coated with what I would describe as a white chalky finish. You can paint it etc then you can scratch away the paint to reveal the white again. It comes already cut to different sizes. Look at this link for more info http://www.chocolatebaroque.com/Stampbord_c_25.html

    You should be able to get it where you are xxx
