What are 'twinchies' you may ask and if you pop over to this new challenge blog all will be explained! At the moment I'm not convinced these are for me because I've always found ATCs a bit restrictive and they are larger (3.5 x 2.5 inches) than the 2" square twinchies but nothing daunted I've had a go for this very first challenge with the easy theme of 'anything goes' - in fact I've had two goes. The first was another Zentangle which as a newcomer to this technique was a bit difficult because the official Zentangle tiles are 3.5 inches so I had to scale down but I have managed a far from perfect example.
The second one is actually the promised 'slosh around with inks' which will fit the Make My Monday primary colours theme - as you can probably guess the weather just got wetter and wetter yesterday so no way I'd be out weeding. It is also looking very dull and dark outside this morning so maybe more 'playtime' is on the cards (excuse the pun). I used Distress inks and Distress stains to colour some card, cut out a two inch square and stamped some foliage with a Papermania stamp, finally adding some butterflies die cut with a Sizzix (for Stampin' Up) die. At least I think this one will make a nice 'topper' for a card.
I hope you will take a look at what the Design Team have come up with for their twinchies and also follow this link to Eileen's blog to see some more.
