Have you heard of Twinchies?

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  We celebrated Canada Day with gorgeous weather, I can hear fireworks outside tonight.       

Have you heard of Twinchies ?    I hadn't until Eileen, whose beautiful creations I've been following at Eileen's Crafty Zone, talked about them on her Blog.   She is a DT member at their new Challenge Blog: Show us your Twinchies.

I thought that ATC's were a challenge since they are so small at 2.5 x 3.5 inches but Twinchies are a bigger challenge with just a tiny 2 inch square to work with.  I decided I would create one to enter into their first challenge - Anything Goes as it's fun to try new things. 

I took my Dylusions Ink sprays out again to experiment with the background which is actually not as dark as this photo.  The small image is Dandelions PS0478 by Hampton Art.    I think this is the first time I've used it.   I stamped it off a few times.    I decided to use a brush pigment pen to create a border after it was finished to make the colours pop.    I had some very tiny rhinestone butterflies in my stash, I guess this is what I've been saving them for !
OK that's all for tonight !   Thanks for your visit and hopefully I'll be back soon with a card.

  15. You created a beauty!! What a colour!!
    It really is amazing you did this on such a small piece of paper.
    I heard about twinchies and there are also inchies!!
    That's the next step, I think.
    Thank you for your kind words on my blog.
    I love nice people, that's why.
    Love Gery

  16. This is the first to hear of this fancy word Twinchies! LOL!
    But whatever and however you did with it, it's amazingly so beautiful..
    Again you rocked it with this card... And those purples are sooooo pretty... Wow!

  17. oh sooo pretty! Very nice job

  18. Such a tiny space to work with! Love the colors you chose :)

  19. I've been wondering what Twinchies were! I can't believe you got all that detail in such a small space:) I love the colors too!

  20. It's so nice to be back on a PC that behaves and does just what I ask of it. I looked at the twinchies a few times before I went away, your's is beautiful, so much detail, so little space. I'm loving what you're doing with the Dylusion sprays, think I will have to invest.

    I was glad to read that you've not damaged your knee as much as you first feared. The rest obviously done it the world of good, hope the finger is getting better too.

    Warm greetings, Marlene :)
