Just one inch

I was determined to make an inchie which pleased me...  and this one does.
I began by cutting a few squares, then dropping a little Festive Berries Distress Ink onto one before spritzing with water. 
The next stage was to smear a little  Old Silver Inka Gold onto part of it and spritzing again. When dry, the next thing was to stamp a tiny script stamp from SU(French Foliage) over it. I die cut a couple of  holly leaves in green paper and added them before triple embossing... or maybe it was quadruple embossing (as I didn't use UTEE) with fine clear embossing powder. Whilst still molten, I stamped the circular stamp with Brilliance Gold ink into the corner. When cool I added the couple of pearls for berries.
I love that the card is so big, yet the image so small it really draws the eye as there's nothing else to look at!
I think this works for both  Challenges CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour
Now for a trip to the park with my littlest grandchild!
