Autumn and Autumn Colours Twinchie Challenge



Good morning followers, friends and twinchie lovers out in blogland,  Here I am with my DT post for September's Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge which is Autumn and Autumn Colours, I hope you will pop over and join in with a twinchies or two.  For anyone new to twinchies a twinchies is a 2" x 2" piece of artwork, simple or complicated the choice is yours.

This is a fabulous time of year with all the beautiful changing colours and rich autumn fruits , the challenge this month's could be Autumn images, trees, leaves, fruits or to use Autumn colours on your twinchie. 

Here are a few DT twinchies inspired by this very colourful season. 









I coloured 4 twinchie bases with Autumn colours using distress inks, Tim Holtz mini stamps were stamped onto an acetate twinchie with Stazon in black and this was fastened to the coloured twinchie. 

I made a special Autumn twinchie wallet to hold all my Autumn twinchies, coloured with distress inks and stamped with the Tim Holtz stamps.  The acorn was cut out and the bottom half stuck down with sticky pads,the lid slides behind the acorn to fasten it.  You can find a tutorial on how to make the twinchie wallet HERE.


I also made a few twinchies to use on cards using distress inks and copper, gold and silver embossing powders.
 



I am looking forward to seeing your Autumnal twinchies and I will be back later in the month with some more ideas in the midway-reminder post.
