Well, amazingly, this is my THIRD post of the day and it's only 9am ....Go Barbara!
Two months ago I had a brainwave......to start making 'Twinchies'. What made me come up with this idea, I couldn't say, but here I am, with 3 other partners in crime, making TWINCHIES for our very own challenge blog.
If you've never heard of a twinchie, it's a small piece of card, measuring 2" x 2", and decorated just however you please, with whatever 'medium' you want....Inks, Pan Pastels, Paint, Fabric, Glitter, etc, etc, (you get the picture yet?)
So, onto the twinchies I made for our very first challenge, which is called 'Anything Goes'
(This challenge will run until midnight on 14th July)
Free stamp from Craft Stamper was coloured with Pan Pastels. I've then used my Versamark pen, to ink the centres of the circles and heat embossed them with Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer powder. I've coloured the face with Promarkers
This twinchie was inked with Tim Holtz distress inks, scattered straw and fired brick. Another stamp from Craft Stamper mag was stamped twice, once on the twinchie, and once onto scrap. I cut the shell out, and decoupaged it onto the the main image. With the Versamark pen I drew a few lines, following the shape of the shell, and heat embossed them.
I used Pan Pastels, red and yellow on this twinchie....and yes, you've guessed, another stamp from Craft Stamper mag!
( they fit twinchies so well, and are absolutely FREE! )
I dragged a Versamark pad around the edges and again heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder.
Well, that's definitely all for today, I'm exhausted.....
