Inchie Arts!

So excited to announce that I am the newest addition to the Inchie Arts team!! If you're not familiar with Inchie Arts products, here's a quick description from their site:

Inchie Squares are made of the highest grade Alphamat Artcare museum quality preservation matteboard. The material has a solid white archival core and is acid free and lignin free, as well as fade and bleed resistant making it a very desirable art surface.... It is well suited for direct application of many different art mediums including rubber stamping, markers, colored pencil, watercolor paints, embellishment or collage materials applied to its surface and sides.

Inchie Squares come in 3 different sizes - 1", 1-1/2", and 2" squares. There are also square cards in a variety of assorted colors, and a variety of products that complement the squares.
For this card I stamped my image across 2 Inchie+ squares (1-1/2"). The image is from Flourishes, and is colored with Touch Twin markers. I used a waterbrush filled with rubbing alcohol to 'paint' the marker ink in the background (you can view a tutorial video HERE).

These are the markers that I used:

I love how the matteboard works with the markers, and look forward to playing with them some more! In the past I have colored them with pencils and watercolors, and they take color beautifully. So happy to be able to work with these amazing products, and share them with you!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Congrats, Dini! This card is beautiful and I can't wait to see all the wonderful creations to come! So happy for you!

  2. eeek, I'm so jealous!! I love inchie art!! and you will be a fantastic addition!! This is amazing!!

  3. Congrats on the new DT! Look forward to seeing more creations with this new (at least to me) product! Love your card!

  4. Congratulations on your new DT. You did an amazing job with the inchies. Your watercolouring really adds to it.

  5. Congratulations on the new design team appointment! I'm anxious to see your Inchie art. I've wanted to try it. I'd like to ask a question about putting alcohol in the waterbrush. Can you leave the alcohol in the brush if you plan to use it often? Or is it so harsh that it will ruin the bristles/brush? I have a few of those brushes that I've never used and I guess I'm lazy to think it's a pain to always have to put the alcohol in the brush! LOL!! I'd probably need a funnel, etc. Where filling with water I'd just stick it under the faucet and wipe up the excess after filling.

  6. Congratulations! I know you will show us some great things! Always look forward to seeing your work. Beautiful card by the way, I love the green floss in the buttons and your coloring is wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
