First Twinchie Challenge of 2013

When I saw the theme for the Twinchie Challenge 1 was Anything Goes, I thought that would be easy but no so. I have messed about for a week thinking about what to do.
I spent Saturday indoors as its freezing outside and I am not planning to go outside to play in the snow. So I produced a quick twinchie using my new set of PaperArtsy stamps, JOFY 09. I love this set, so versatile. It was a bit of a challenge trying to fit an image onto a 2" by 2" square because the stamps are mostly large but it can be done, here is my button flower.

The background is spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Mango Blaze. The images are (carefully) stamped in black archival ink and then coloured with Tim Holtz Distress markers. Peeled Paint for the grass, Spun Sugar and Fired brick for the flowers and Tumbled Glass for the bubbles. I added a pink button from my button box for the centre of the flower. I think buttons suit the style of these stamps, what do you think?

Hope those of you in the UK are keeping warm in this freezing weather and stay safe if you venture outdoors.

    Thanks for visiting.

  3. This is so funky, one of your best. I guess I am a minimalist.

  4. What a fabulous the background, as I adore Cosmic Shimmer mists and use them a lot. The stamps are great too, and the button definitely works well.
