Spring “Crazy Paved” Twinchies

Hello

I have some twinchies to share today after having a ‘desperate’ need to do something creative.

I used a technique which I haven’t for some time which I like to think I made up and named ‘Crazy Paved Stamping’.  I do not know of a proper technique but please let me know if you have seen something similar.

For my technique I used a lovely Hobby Art stamp of a daffodil, which I am particularly fond of.

I stamped the image onto 3 different colours of card and coloured the images using my trusty pencils.  I then cut the images up completely randomly and pieced back together again forming a crazy paved pattern. I do a similar technique where I piece the odd pieces back to form the original image for a different look.  Please visit this post for more ideas http://wp.me/p385yc-aO.

I then added a little punched butterfly. I added glitter to 2 of them.

I hope you like them.

TTFN.

Reminded of 1st ATC Swap I did

Hello

I was recently sorting some photos on my computer into some kind of order when I found a photo of the 1st ATC swap I entered into, which was quite some time ago now and I thought I would share.

The theme was floral and I used a lovely stamp from Hobby Art.  Obviously I created it in a purple theme and used an Aubergine Ink pad from Stampin Up.

The crochet flower I made myself using a variegated thread.

I really love making ATC’s, they are just enough to task the brain sometimes when a bit of creativity is required.

I hope you like it.

TTFN.

Autumn Leaves are Falling Down

Hello

I have another autumnal card to share today.

WP_20140806_031

For my tile card, I started by cutting 12 pieces of card, each 2 inch square (twinchie size), from 4 different shades of green.  I then used some Spellbinder leaf dies on each square cutting theshape over the edge to leave the negative shape.

I cut a further 12 tiles and painted with shades of green acrylic paint, leaving lots of paint strokes for added texture and interest.  I mounted my tiles together using 3D foam tape to add height and arranged them into a grid, then mounted all of them onto a piece of card and patterned paper.

I painted the chipboard letters to co-ordinate and arranged them onto my grid with skeleton leaves.

Thanks for visiting.

See you again soon.

Sunflower Twinchie Card

Hello

Well it’s the first day of the summer holidays and there is nothing more summery than a sunflower, so here is a card made using a stamp from Hobby Art.

I made a sunflower twinchie a while ago, here is the original post if you missed it; http://wp.me/p385yc-hy.  I made a further one to make into a card.

I used the Paisley Embossilicious Embossing Folder for the background and a scrap of co-ordinating ribbon.
