Hello everyone ! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. It's HOT here again with high humidity. We also have lots of flowers blooming, I need to get out there with a camera when the lighting is right.
I'm happily participating in the Show us your Twinchie Challenge #2 - "Summer" that runs until July 31st. I think these tiny (2 inch x 2 inch) creations are going to become "habit forming" as I found I was anxiously awaiting the next challenge theme :) It is challenging to create designs in such a small space, but they are fun. Since this challenge is "Summer", I was able to come with a little 'Summer at the Sea' Twinchie using a my IO Seaside sets that include tiny little stamps !
I used the following Impresssion Obsesssion stamps: MC183 Angelfish & CL182 By the Seaside both by Leigh Hannon. A lot of my IO stamps are by L. Hannon who has great designs.
The mini background was created with Distress Inks using the Acrylic Block technique. I stamped the tiny fish & sea plants from the Angel fish set directly onto the background and the Seahorse from the By the Seaside set on separate cardstock. I coloured all with Distress Markers and then cut out the Seahorse and popped it up. I decided on a very narrow black mat to pop the colours a little more, so I cut a tiny bit off the background so that it would fit inside a 2 inch square mat.
I created a card with the Twinchie using designer paper from a set from S.E.I "on the coast" collection. I played around with adding a quote/poem from the sets but it just wasn't working for me. I also used a die from Nellie's Multi Frames.
Well that's all for now, I'll be back later with a design using Crealies :)
Thanks for your visit and enjoy your day !
