The Small World of Inchies & Twinchies challenge this week is "Spring". Aren't we all thinking Spring. I know I am.
My Twinchie (1" x 2") is made with a ripple embossed base. On this I layered my Prima flower and butterfly (does't look much like a butterfly but it is). The butterfly came embellished with pearls so I just carried on with a pearl embellishment. You can't see it that well but there is clear sparkly thread wrapped around the Twinchie and left in a tassle.
I love doing these smaller pieces. I've been thinking of doing a Twinchie challenge here. I would post or link to each blog that submits a Twinchie. Maybe even give a small prize. If at least 5 people leave me a comment that they want to do this, I'll do it.
I'll give it a couple of days to see if there is any response.
Vickie from Stamped Smiles
has the neatest ribbon border on one of her cards.
She is also demonstrating the 3-D technique.
Vickie is very talented and creative. You should really check this out.
Here is my Glitter Lizard from the Spring Fling newsletter.
It turned out OK for doing just a quick try. I used white pigment ink sprinkled with crystal glitter. The lizard ggdesigns
is stamped with black dye ink. I did have to brush off some of the glitter from where it didn't belong. That might have been because the black ink wasn't quite dry. I didn't cut out the lizard like I was going to because I thought you might like to see how nice the white on white looks.
I can forward a copy of the newsletter if anyone would like a copy.
