My First Twinchie

Hi All,
Well had a rummage around my crafty stuff last night and found my Stampbord!!!1 Use to use this a lot and somehow had forgotten how good it is to work with. This is a little 2x2 I used....a Twinchie.

Coloured the background with Scattered Straw and Big and Juicy Foliage Yellow. The image is part of a Happy Birthday stamp by Crafty Individuals, which I stamped in black Stazon. Then the fun bit, scratching away to give the highlights. I love how this makes areas pop out!! Went back into the etched areas with peach colour to add a little more colour. Think I might get hooked on these little beauties and have set aside some 'play' time later to do some more......watch this space as they say! Hoping to make them into some little fridge magnets as gifts......or to sell if I'm ever brave enough!
Thanks for popping by

  5. Hi again Carol, you can use anything as a base for your Twinchies, the only rule is that it is square and 2"x2" you can hang things over the edge too just as long as the base is 2x2 xxx

  6. Well done with this little beauty Carol.. as Zoe says, you can use any material you like as a base as long as its a square and 2" x 2".
