Twinchie


Hello wasn't it sunny again on Monday I created a few things I was really steaming a head ;-) which was wonderful. I love that feeling when everything just slots into place and one thing after another was just great! I am using this for two challenges. I bet you can guess the 1st one? Yep it's Sir Stampalot 'Blossoms & Butterfly's' (number 4 for me) pop over for more info I won't bore you again. The 2nd is SCD They are celebrating their First Year  and going back to where they started so this celabration month will be 'Twinchies' and this week is 'flowers' the first week was butterfly's but I missed it so what a great a  great combo i'll but both together ;0)


Here is the close up. It's some eco friendly stamp board (cheaper than the normal stuff). It' began life plain white. So I had to make some differences, I used a few DIs, some stamps and some of my FP (see previous post) and this is also A bit of a hint to tomorrow's post! if any of you play WOYWW with Julia with the rest of blog land lol there is something special happening tomorrow so make sure you pop back here to see where this Twinchie fits in! Love Dawn xx 

Edited to add some more photos (couldn't help my self he he)

This is another little Sneak peak for tomorrow's little project, I am getting really exited about WOYWW this week ;0) I have altered a few Bottle Caps  (BC) and I thought I would show you two first this little sneak peak one you will get all the details about this tomorrow.




I have to say I am really pleased with how these BC are turning out. I haven't squashed this one (like the previous one)  I then covered in alcohol inks when dry I stamped back and I punched out a Crafty Individuals photo then I added some stickles all round some glassy accents and then painstakingly placed each gold glass seed bead round. And I am going to enter this into a challenge  Alter it monthly This month the theme is 'Tin Pan Ally' so any metal pop over for all the details. So you can see why I had to add these two little things I am off out for the day so see you all tomorrow. love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Distress Inks (DIs) Tim Holtz. Stamp board, Fruit Pixie. Stamps, Laura Ashley and Paper doll art (Catherine Moore).
