Microcosmos! Watercolor scrap Inchies

Ahhhh! I spent WAY too much time hunched over making these little inchies! I wanted to do some more in this pieced together style, and I thought what better theme than tiny little microcosmo-type things. I can't pick a favorite, but I think the most visually appealing one is the hummingbird.
The mouse took FOR-EV-ER. Those little limbs are soooo tiny, I had to use tweezers to place them, and don't even get me started on cutting them out. The end result is cute, though. At least I didn't spend all that time for it to turn out like crap, right? :) The mushrooms, much more simple :)
I wasn't so sure about the feather, but after looking at it for a little bit, I decided it reminds me of travel, and I like that. Doesn't the background look a little bit like Europe? And the fish, who can go wrong with tiny fish? :)
Still plenty of tiny watercolor scraps left! Happy Friday! Have a lovely weekend!

I love these! I don't have the patience...I tried tiny paper cuttings before and wanted to scream. The feather is awesome.

Don't you LOVE the bird embroidery scissors? I found a pair at a garage sale a while back. Not only are they perfect for cutting tiny things, but the bird is SO adorable!
