Hello all you lovely blogland ladies, here we are in a New Year with lots of new challenges to get our teeth into.
The Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge theme is "ANYTHING GOES" the challenge starts today 5th January through to 4th February, lots of time to get creative and you can enter up to 3 twinchies if you wish. Here are some of the ideas I came up with for the DT, check out the other DT twinchies here.
My first twinchies were inspired by Christmas and New year with lots of celebrating going on, first was a clock and fireworks very New year. The Big Ben clock, a digi from Digi Stamp Boutique, was printed onto the twinchie, I drew fireworks using a versamark pen and embossed with clear powder. The background was coloured with chipped saphire distress ink using a blending tool, the clock face and windows were coloured lemon and clear embossed, and a little glitter was added for sparkle.
The next idea was party animals, these cute monsters took my fancy I thought they were well up for a party!
And don't forget the conga, here we have party, New Year and animals in this one!
Moving on to something different, using a new stamp "Looking Glasses" from the papermania Urban Stamps range, I stamped the image with black Stazon ink, clear embossed it and coloured the background with tarnishes brass and antique bronze distress stain. The glasses were highlighted with tarnished brass using a paint brush. The clock and cogs twinchie (shown above) was stamped but not embossed and carefully coloured round the clock face with antique bronze stain. I stamped and clear embossed a second clock face, cut it out and coloured with tarnished brass stain. the clock face was attached with sticky pads and a few clock parts added for interest.
Come on ladies, come and join us and let us see your "Anything Goes" twinchie ideas!
