...I didn't say banana?

Are you familiar with that knock-knock joke? LOL This swap is back by popular demand!

The object of this series is to make sets of inchies that are monochromatic. In the past we have done "Tickled Pink", "Lavendar & Lace", "Green with Envy", "Purple Rain", "The Black Market", "Family Jewels", "Seeing Red" and "I'm so Blue".

This installment is "Orange you glad...".

Make 4 inchies each for 2 partners (8 inchies total). These 8 inchies can be any theme/technique you want them to be; however, each inchie needs to be predominantly ORANGE in color. Inchies are little pieces of art that measure 1" by 1" square.

You can make two identical sets of inchies - one set for each partner, or you can make 8 totally unique inchies. Within each set you can draw one, collage one, paint one, bead one - or use the same medium/technique for all of them. One can be "Twilight", one can be Kawaii, one can be a cat, one can be a zentangle. The only rule is that all the inchies for this swap have to be predominantly ORANGE in color. Other than the color it is UP TO YOU!

Inchies can be mounted on chipboard or some other super heavy backing - or, they can be two or more layers of cardstock. They can even be fabric! I have some inchies on my Flickr - so do some other Swap-Bot members (check out @dobie256 's Flickr!). Search for "inchies" on Flickr for ideas and inspiration!

Let me know if you have any questions at all - thanks! Newbies are ALWAYS welcome in my swaps; however, I will ban anyone that I feel is questionable (due to past ratings, etc.).

Does it matter what they are made of, as long as they are sturdy?

Yea - glad you are still picking colors. I love this series of swaps!!

LauraAust 01/21/2011 #

@HollyBear - nope, doesn't matter at all!

@dobie256 - I was going to kind of fade into the sunset but got a note from someone hoping I was going to continue the series. :)

Love it! I enjoyed the blue inchie swap, but this one is even better - orange is tied with pink for my favorite color. ;)

Hmmmm... orange is at the bottom of MY list - I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do for this one! LOL
